Hi, my name is Nana Kesse and i am a sickle cell disease survivor. I underwent many terrifying hospital visits in 2020. The first major one was in October of where i spent 6 weeks fighting off a bone infection. This took about 3 months to recover from after i was released in November. The following year i was admitted into the ICU for a week on May 1st. This was because i had a fever and was vomiting blood. This stay was another 3 week stay and later on in the year i had about multiple hospitalizations which totaled about three months in the hospital. My health began to deteriorate very quickly and so i underwent a bone marrow transplant in 2022. It was felt like a do or die situation and i took the opportunity at a chance to regain some control over my health. Unfortunately because of the severity of my crises i haven't been able to maintain gainful employment and have found it difficult to keep up with living expenses and medical bills. This fundraiser will help with costs incurred over the past few years and future upcoming bills such as my right total hip replacement and other procedures. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated and thank you for reading all the way up to here.
if you’d like to see some stories from the transplant I share some of my experience on my TikTok;
