Precious' life full of praises

Precious Akerejola

Precious had her first Sickle Cell crisis when she was two. At one point, the pain was so bad that she asked her parents to buy her a new arm and leg.. And even high doses of morphine did little to relieve the pain during her worst crisis. Stress is one of the things that can trigger a crisis so Precious has worked closely with her college to negotiate manageable schedules. Hopefully her dream of becoming a paediatrician and helping other children with Sickle Cell Anaemia will come true.
