Even though he was born with it, Jai’Quan didn’t show signs of the incurable disease of Sickle Cell Anemia until he was two months old. As the condition took hold of his red blood cells, he started to retain blood in his spleen causing for its removal. He lives with the constant pain associated with the disease. During a sickle cell crisis, his joints lock up and cause joint pain.

He dreams of taking a family trip out of town.
