Rallying support for sickle cell awareness..... Spread the word doctors and hospitals r driving patients from the help they need into the arms of drug dealers. Then when patients show up in hospital and a tox-screen is done, they say see I knew he or she was a junkie. Doctors have caused these patients to be drug dependant only. In the east doctors are paid to heal, to cure, to get results. In the U.S. doctors are given bonuses by pharmaceutical companies based on the meds they prescribe and how much. However, recent laws have been passed limiting the amount of narcotic meds a doctor can give. Doctors have been running scared and dumping patients with chronic pain and/or those who demand large amounts of pain meds. Thus, many sickle cell patients are finding themselves without doctors or help to deal with their crisis pain and/or the side effects of sickle cell; such as A-vascular necrosis, a.k.a. bone death. Other issues like arthritis and poor blood circulation leading to weakness, dark nails and even unhealthy teeth, just to name a few. Now a while back I told my doctor of natural remedies my aunt(s) and other relatives recommended and how some seemed to help. He dismissed them and said the only thing that will help is taking what he prescribes. Not long before I heard of the new law, resulting in him dropped my sister and I, from his practice. No reason given. Just telling us we have 30 days to find a new doctor and if we get sick during the 30 days he will see us but that was it.

Currently I am planning a series of concerts in aid of sickle cell awareness to bring knowledge and truth to the world about the lack of care given to people with sickle cell because it is perceived as a disease that caters to addicts primarily because of people color are the primary carriers. I was in the hospital once and a nurse told me there are real sick people here. In another instance I and a cancer patient shared the same room. We were both in agony calling for our nurses. However when I called no one came for 45min. However my room mate was surrounded by 5 nurses in 5 minutes. Doctors and nurses are not taught to respect the pain of the sickle cell patient as they do those with cancer or AIDS. In their opinion we are drug seeking people who waste their time and cause them frustration when nothing they give eases our pain. What they hate most is that what works for one patient doesn't work for another. So they conclude that we will forget what the patient says and give us what they feel should work no matter what and send us on our way. So as a patient nuisance since age five, my sister since age 3, we have decided to fight the medical system of the USA and show how 90% of doctors and nurses care for no one in this world but themselves. Truth be told , that ain't much different from the rest of the world; but I fight for those who can't or are afraid to speak, for those whose pain is ignored, my self and my sister as well as my later mother.

I plan to expose fake doctors and nurses for all the world to see. They will be job openings in America in the medical field cause those who don't care for those in need are about to leave a vacancy for many good people who want to care for those in need. It is time to unmask the fake and bring in the real. Just like church many will leave to make room for Gods real servants. This is Project Just-Cause.
