My first interview for #30forSickleCell comes from a mother with whom I can relate. I am happy God has allowed us to connect with one another to lend encouragement and support as we raise our children. Although Sickle Cell (SC) disease may not affect every person in a family, it is something we must face together.
Louisetta Williams and I connected with via twitter. After hearing her story I felt it was important to share in order to help others understand the importance of a strong support system both within the family and from the community.
Louisetta Williams is a single mom of four beautiful girls (her youngest child has SC), writer/future author and an aspiring entrepreneur.
