WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? WHY DO THEY LOOK PAST US?

TEAM SICKLE CELL IS HUGE AND THE COMMUNITY IS EVEN LARGER. WHY ARE WE STILL LACKING IN AWARENESS WHEN WE ARE LOSING SOLDIERS EVERY DAY IT SEEMS? WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? I FEEL SO INSIGNIFICANT AT TIMES. JUST BECAUSE I DON'T DO A LOT OF FACE TIME ADVOCACY...PLZ KNOW THAT I AM MAKING CONNECTIONS BEHIND THE SCENE WITH PPL OUTSIDE OF THIS COMMUNITY. I AM JUST ASTONISHED THAT THESE PPL DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE NUMBERS. THEY ARE WONDERING THE EXACT SAME THINGS THAT WE ARE AND THAT IS WHY IS THE WORLD NOT TREATING THIS AS AN EPIDEMIC. SICKLE CELL IS THE NUMBER ONE BLOOD DISORDER AND WE GET NO AIRTIME. I BEGAN TO RESEARCH HOW THE HIV/CANCER COMMUNITIES CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF THE WORLD...AM I WRONG FOR TRYING TO FOLLOW IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS? WDYT? LET'S TALK...
