Hello everyone, my name is Isowa (hence Isowarrior 😉) Odiase, aka Chocho, Isochocho. I always remind myself that I am the daughter of the KING. I am His special one, He has brought me and kept me alive so far to make a positive impact to everyone I am in contact with through love, health, wealth and perfect self-expression. To show the wonderful works of God and inspire others to know Him. This is my mission (which is a work in progress).
My definition of a warrior is - a person engaged in some struggle/obstacle, a survivor, strong, courageous, determined, almost perfect, will always persevere in the end, a HERO.
Over the years people who suffer with Sickle Cell disease have been known as Sickle Cell Warriors. I completely APPROVE!
We are strong, determined, and blessed!
MANAGING SICKLE CELL
So, why are you reading this?
On June 27, 2018 at about midnight, I came up with the domain name for this site because for several years I have been thinking of supporting this cause.
Three years after I was born, my parents found out that I have Sickle Cell Anemia (more info on Sickle Cell Facts). Apparently, I started showing symptoms of the disease when I was 4-5 months old, my left knee was swollen, and this was one of the signs. I couldn’t move my knee for weeks, but eventually got better and started walking at 9 months! From then, I would show signs of swollen belly (spleen), feel aches and pains in my joints, limbs, back, waist, teeth, basically everywhere, constipation, acute chest, pneumonia and more.
It has been a tough journey and my hope is to help reduce the pain by creating awareness and supporting other patients mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially.
