The 15-year challenge

Timeyin Valerie Omagbitse

Timeyin was only three years old when she had her first stroke. Monthly blood transfusions followed in an attempt to minimise damage to her liver and other organs. A severe crisis 11 years later resulted in a serious chest infection and admission to intensive care, where the care was less than caring. Since then, Timeyin has cared really well for herself and is proud to be a stroke survivor and a strong, independent young woman living well with Sickle Cell Anaemia.
This Patient Voices digital story was created in a workshop funded by Imperial College Healthcare Charity and North West London CLAHRC.
