Sickle Cell Disease: Mike's Story (Video)
In this video Mike, 18, talks about life with sickle cell disease, including how he manages pain crises, stays on top of schoolwork, and finds time for skateboarding and other interests. He also talks about why it helps to have a close bond with his doctors.
