Sickle Cell in the News: One Triumphant Story

Jozlyn_Bone_Marrow_RecipientLiving with Sickle Cell Anemia isn’t easy, but a cure does exist. Recently, my heart was warmed as I watched the story of Jozlyn Miller. She is a young 13 year old girl who was born with this genetic disorder and has lived with the battles that having Sickle Cell anemia bring. Jozlyn now has a new lease on life after she received a bone marrow transplant from Petra Poker.

Petra Poker donated her bone marrow and has now helped save Jozlyn’s life.

Currently, a Bone Marrow Transplant is one of the only cures that exists for this genetic blood disorder.

Jozlyn is so blessed to have found a donor. We wish her joy, peace, and good health for all the years ahead of her.

Both Jozlyn and Petra’s lives will forever be changed. Thank you Petra!
