Lena Harvey | Sickle Cell Warrior

Sickle cell warrior Lena Harvey knows firsthand how isolating, painful and debilitating sickle cell disease can be. That’s why she’s passionate about advocating for others. “Anywhere there is a sickle cell initiative, anywhere there is someone who needs to learn something about sickle cell or the impact they could have by simply giving blood, that’s where I come in,” she says. “We all deserve a chance at life.”
