Hi everyone, my name is Aquillus Ward. These past couple of weeks have been the the worst for me. I have been having a lot of abnormal heartrates and headaches everyday, not knowing whats going on with my body. I continued to push through everyday life thinking overtime i would start to feel better only to get worse. I started passing out at work and sometimes in public because of my heart pounding really fast, a lot of dizziness and lack of strength. I decided to go to the doctor, only to be told my blood was really really low. They immediately rushed me to the hospital. Doctors told me i had only 3% of blood in my body and if i would have prolonged a visit, i wouldve died unexpectedly. My heart was trying to pump oxygen from the blood that i didnt have. Immediately i was immitted into the hospital to have a blood transfusion due to being anemic. During the procedure, i was given 5 pints of blood, but they still werent able to get me to a solid level because i was so low. Afterwards they found out i was still losing a lot of blood somewhere, and is still being considered for further treatments and procedures. I was recently diagnosed with sickle cell anemia, which had taken a toll on my body. Due to these medical problems and being hospitalized, Im currently not able to work. This unexpected medical issue has caused great hardship in my life. If anyone could donate during this time, i would greatly appreciate it.
