When author Zetta Sylvia Baillou-Poitier met her husband, Floyd, in 1988, it was love at first sight. She had no idea he carried the sickle-cell trait, and he had no idea Zetta also had the sickle-cell trait. But it set the stage for the challenges the couple would face as they started a family together. In Facing Two Sickles, Zetta shares the story of raising two children diagnosed with sickle-cell disease, an inherited condition affecting a person's haemoglobin. In this memoir, she offers a look at the disease, its symptoms, its treatment, and she tells how she leaned on the Lord. Facing Two Sickles offers encouragement and inspiration to caretakers and parents of children with sickle-cell disease. Through Zetta's personal story, it helps one cope with the death of a loved one, and it sends the message that those coping with dire illness and loss are not alone.
