Joyce Chiduaka

Joyce is one of the lucky ones with Sickle Cell Anaemia - when she goes to A&E, she is treated like a princess and goes to the head of the queue. Since her first Sickle Cell crisis when she was five, Joyce has, for the most part, managed her pain at home. Some years later, what seemed like a 'regular crisis' became so bad that hospital was the only option. Surgery, dehydration and extreme pain have given way to hope and optimism and Joyce is becoming stronger every day.
This Patient Voices digital story was created in a workshop funded by Imperial College Healthcare Charity and North West London CLAHRC.
