Understanding Sickle Cell Disease

Jumo comic books help you learn about your health condition, treatment, and how medical procedures work, by sharing the experiences of a real kid. Sickle cell disease is a problem with your blood, which is made in the bone marrow. Red blood cells need to be round and flexible to move easily through the bloodstream and transport oxygen to your body. When the cells are curved, they wear out faster and cause you to feel weak and tired, along with other symptoms. Join Tiahna on her journey through the human body to learn more about living with sickle cell disease.
