Jenica Leah has sickle cell disease – a blood disorder mainly effecting black people. It is an invisible disease causing a long list of life-threatening complications. Sickle cell is characterized as a rare disease yet 17 million globally live with it. And it doesn’t get much attention amongst doctors, researchers and in the pharma industry. Jenica Leah wants to change that. She has published a children’s book, runs a radio show and produces a podcast. She fights to make the invisible, visible.
