Egypt A. Harvey is a fighting spirit! She is becoming “a voice” for children diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia. Born with Sickle Cell Anemia, Egypt understands the everyday issues and struggles of living with this disease, hospitalizations and medications. She offers a firsthand look into her life, a child that must “keep moving forward,” even when she is not feeling her best. Once Egypt was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia at birth, her mother went searching for books that offered a firsthand account of what it is like to live, manage and raise a child diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia, however, she was unsuccessful. Several years later, the book has been written. “Sickle Cell Anemia : A Mother's Perspective: What Every Parent Should Know” was released in 2010 followed by, “Taking My Medicine: Seeing Sickle Cell Anemia Through My Eight Year Old Eyes: One Child's Perspective” in 2011. Egypt’s mom believed it was important for Egypt to share her personal experiences with other children living with this disease and to become an inspiration to those children diagnosed after her. This is only the beginning!
