Terri lives with sickle cell disease, a genetic blood disorder that causes red blood cells to be misshaped. When she was hospitalized in 2012 with a sickle cell crisis, most of the doctors and nurses caring for Terri were not familiar with how to treat the problems caused by sickle cell disease, which can include severe pain, stroke, heart attack, lung failure, kidney failure, blood clots, nerve damage, blindness, and even death. When a treatment becomes available for sickle cell disease, provider education to use personalized medicine will be critically important.
