Sickle Cell Superheroes is a sweet fictional story about a young girl showing bravery, strength and determination to live her life to the fullest despite the obstacles she sometimes faces with her blood disorder.

"My name is Kenya, and I am a sickle cell superhero. Did you know all sickle cell superheroes have sickle cell disease and share the same fight, even though they have different stories? This is my story, where the sun rises every morning and I become a warrior just like you. What's your story?"
"I received the copy of the book I ordered, Sickle Cell Superheroes, which I understand is published by HPC International Inc. I think the book is wonderful, the content well suited for a younger child, and the illustrations are beautiful. I have passed the book along to our Child Life Specialist that ordered it, along with your website information. I imagine she may take a look at your website to see what other titles you carry. Thank you for your follow-up call and I wish you a lovely day!"
