Zahara is a fun-loving little girl who loves to sing, dance and play mini-golf with her mom and dad. On her good days, she’s just like any other child her age. On her bad days, she’s sick and in the hospital. Zahara has been suffering from Sickle Cell since birth. At times, she has severe headaches, gallstones and stomach pains so intense she can hardly breathe. When she was two, she had to have her spleen removed because of a serious condition caused by the disease. She also has a history of acute chest syndrome, which is like pneumonia. Her mom Kesha explained how hard it is to live with the situation: “From the heart of a mother, who wants to hear doctors tell you your child may not live to be as old as you are”? As parents they have been upfront with Zahara about her disease. She wants to grow up to be a doctor to help kids like her. Without a bone marrow transplant, she will never see that dream come true.Donate/Download Tattoo Now
