Sherman Moore is a overcomer with a great attitude. Why? Because he is having a great life even though he had sickle cell for over fourty years.
Mr. Moore grew up in Barbados. He came to Toronto when he was thirteen years old and worked for many years in the areas of sales and sales management in the IT and insurance industries. He is married with three sons and lives at the present time in Mississauga, Ontario with his wife and two of his sons.
At eight years old, he began feeling severe pain attacks that would last two to three days at a time three to four times a years. No one knew what was the cause of these pain attacks. The pain attacks continued after he arrived in Canada at thirteen years old. At seventeen, he was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. Two years before he was diagnosed, one of his sisters died from sickle cell anemia the day after birthing a child. Four out of the nine children that his parents had were diagnosed with sickle cell.
During this interview, Mr. Moore talks and shares about his life, the history of sickle cell, how one’s life is affected if they have sickle cell, why Black men need to check to see if they have sickle cell, what the medical community needs to better deal with sickle cell and how he has overcome it and is thankful to be alive.
He also gives exciting news that a bill has been introduced in the Canadian House of Commons (Bill C605 on December 13, 2010) to have the Minister of Health to initiate discussions with the provincial and territorial health ministers to develop a comprehensive national strategy for the health care for persons who have sickle cell.
