My life with Sickle Cell

Malachi Vidal-Martin

14 year-old Malachi is a keen dancer. He also has Sickle Cell Anaemia. His first crisis began with excruciating pain in his stomach at 3.45 one morning when he was only six. His first blood transfusion quickly followed. Regular transfusions, drinking plenty of water and staying warm enable him to manage the condition and mean that he can still keep up with his friends and enjoy dancing.
This Patient Voices digital story was created in a workshop funded by Imperial College Healthcare Charity and North West London CLAHRC.
