Sickle Cell Superheroes

View

Share this beautiful hand-illustrated children's storybook written by Destiny Van Sciver, a healthcare professional and the mother of two children with sickle cell disease (SCD), a blood disorder affecting people of all ages all around the world. Through her new book, Destiny hopes to provide comfort and better understanding to other families like her own who's young children have also been diagnosed with SCD.

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. This book is a perfect resource for patients and families in hematology departments and sickle cell clinics, and also would make a wonderful addition to any primary K-12 school library, to teach elementary-aged students what it's like living with SCD which some of their classmates very likely have.

"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?"

 

REVIEWS:

"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!" 

-- Dana Stroth, Administrative Assistant, M Health Fairview, University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital, Child and Family Life Services

“My family’s refugee experience in the United States—having to rebuild our lives from nothing—is what drives me to help the poor as often as I am capable.”

 

Rescued from a small fishing boat off the coast of Vietnam in 1975, Kim-Doan Katrina Nguyen and her family soon found themselves starting over in America, with little more than their work ethic and their faith in God to sustain them. Bolstered by her beliefs and her desire to thrive, Nguyen ultimately realized her dream of becoming a physician, specializing in pediatric gastroenterology. Today, her deep faith is evident in her ever present mission to help others, no matter the circumstance. Live to Give is Nguyen’s reflection on a life of determination and devotion, marked most importantly by her gifts of time, talent, and treasure to make the world around her a better place.

A minute for Your Health (2012)

View
What can you learn from the experts in one minute or less that can help you and your family members live better, improve your spirit, and maybe even save your lives? Plenty. A Minute for Your Health
was released with the conviction that a minute can make a difference in your life-a life or death difference!

Readers responded to the vital information in the easy-to-digest format of the first edition, and demand for the book surpassed all expectations. Four years later, we are happy to bring you this
newly expanded edition of A Minute for Your Health, with over 100 health tips on topics ranging from a healthy diet to cardiovascular disease to health insurance.

We hope you'll share A Minute for Your Health with others throughout your religious and community organizations.
Use this book to inform and empower yourself, your family, your friends, and your neighbors. The book talks about some of the biggest killers-including diseases such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and HIV-that are highly preventable. Health awareness is a crucial part of a healthier community.

Religion is a core component of this book, which can be used by individuals and by congregations around which to base health ministry programs and health care discussions.

The Author believes that we don't need to spend more dollars on health care and medicine; what we need to do is 1) think more about our bodies and our health each day, 2) adopt life styles that promote health and not disease, and 3) be prudent shoppers when it comes to selecting a physician, a hospital or an insurance company.

There is no magic pill for youth, longevity, or a disease-free life. There is a prescription, however, that, if followed, can enhance the quality of your life and add years to your life. The TIPS found in this book are part of the prescription; regular church attendance and a positive outlook on life is another part.

This story chronicles the birth and evolution of the minority health and health disparities academic discipline and research agenda within the National Institutes of Health for the next generation of scholars, researchers and healthcare practitioners who must carry forth the torch to, one day, eliminate health disparities.

PAPERBACK EDITION

“My family’s refugee experience in the United States—having to rebuild our lives from nothing—is what drives me to help the poor as often as I am capable.”

 

Rescued from a small fishing boat off the coast of Vietnam in 1975, Kim-Doan Katrina Nguyen and her family soon found themselves starting over in America, with little more than their work ethic and their faith in God to sustain them. Bolstered by her beliefs and her desire to thrive, Nguyen ultimately realized her dream of becoming a physician, specializing in pediatric gastroenterology. Today, her deep faith is evident in her ever present mission to help others, no matter the circumstance. Live to Give is Nguyen’s reflection on a life of determination and devotion, marked most importantly by her gifts of time, talent, and treasure to make the world around her a better place.

A Handbook for Parents & Caregivers

Living Well with Sickle Cell will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to take on a sickle cell diagnosis and advocate for your child’s health and well-being.

Sickle Cell Disease is well known for the pain that it causes. What isn’t widely researched is the emotional stress that families go through due to the unpredictable episodes of pain, hospitalizations, risk of death, and more. Treatment options are few, and curative therapies like bone marrow transplant and gene therapy are promising, but not yet widely accessible. We must do something now to protect those we love. Knowledge truly is power, education is the key, and advocacy is the force to defeat this disease. Living Well with Sickle Cell provides that knowledge and support. Together, we can provide the advocacy needed for a healthier future. Living Well with Sickle Cell will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to take on a sickle cell diagnosis and advocate for your child’s health and well-being.

 

"Living Well with Sickle Cell: A Handbook for Parents and Caregivers is an outstanding resource for families. We supply this handbook to every new family who comes to our sickle cell clinic. It is an extremely well grounded and helpful toolkit for what can otherwise be an overwhelming experience for families. This handbook is often used as a resource over the coming years. Every new family should have one!" 

--Dr. Cheryl A. Hillery, MD, Director of the Comprehensive Pediatric Sickle Cell Program at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh
