"Our families really appreciate this book!"
-- Rachelle Nuss, M.D., Colorado Sickle Cell Treatment and Research Center

"This is a marvelous piece of work. I think it will be a tremendous asset to sickle cell resource libraries. More importantly, it has put into one volume information that is usually spread over many publications - and in terminology the lay person can read and understand, yet also be meaningful for healthcare providers as well."
-- Louise Dorn, R.N., Sickle Cell Center, University of Illinois Medical Center, Chicago
