Pamela has Sickle Cell Anaemia, an inherited blood disorder which means her blood cells are sickle shaped making it difficult for them to circulate around the body. Hear what she has to say about living with the intense pain that can strike at any time, anywhere in her body and the affect this pain has on her daily life.

Genetic Disorders UK would like to thank Pamela and her family. We would also like to thank the Sickle Cell Society which provides information, counselling and caring for those with Sickle Cell disorders and their families.
