Sickle Cell: "Dreams Shattered, Disappointed But Survived" - Nigerian Lady by gistvicconnects: 9:21am On Jun 10

A Nigerian Lady, Ayodele Owoyele shares her sickle cell story as she proves one can live a normal active life with sickle cell. Gistvic Reports.

Ayodele Owoyele said when her dream of been a tourist seems shattered because of her health she was able to pull through.

Read Her Sickle Cell Story:

Attending a public school in Lagos, Nigeria (polytechnic) taught me a lot more about myself and sickle-cell anaemia.

I remember processing my admission into the university, wishing and hoping to get far away from home not until my dream was shattered by my folks and loved ones telling me how it was dangerous to stay far from home because of my health and complications. I felt so pained my dream of being a tourist quickly faded away when the hustle for admission became a tug of war. Eventually I got an OND admission into Highland College of Technology, Ibadan.

They worriedly let go because of the long wait before the admission. During all this process, I kept assuring everyone that I can handle everything and i will be fine by God's grace. After a lot of prayers and warning, I finally went to Ibadan to school .

The school was informed about my health status which I didn't like but you know prevention is better than cure which they also promised to look after me and immediately registered me under a good health care close to school.

Then the race began, early to rise, late to bed, long hours of classes, short-time of socialising and trying to be the best among peers.

Soulage Foundation covered all of my medical bills in and out of crisis and finally finished my ND in Ibadan and HND in Lagos at Yaba College Of Technology, tho it was really stressful but finished gracefully.

If I can, You Can Also Live Right With Sickle Cell"

As long as she maintains a healthy lifestyle and regular with her medication she would pull through. My elder brother who is also a warrior is in his mid 40s is living normally with his wife and children.

Very foolish question. Is sickle cell a cause for stigmatization again?

Don't give up on her behalf. There is a lady who we all grew up together with who is SS like my elder brother (who is now married to a wife who is AA and have children). This lady is from a family of 4 children with 3 of them being SS, It is only the eldest child and first son that is AS. She, her elder sister and younger brother are all SS. Growing up, their parents and mine were always sharing information on food and medication for my brother and their children. Today this lady who is now married with children studied Building Technology at the University of Lagos is the facility manager of a big real estate firm that operates in over 10 African countries and the elder sister works in London for a a French multinational advertising and public relations company after having worked for Airtel, Nokia, Microsoft.

Most sicklers don't "look it" till you see them in crisis.
