Striving through Kidney Failure - Tahirah's Story

November 29, 2022
BY Tahirah

Kidney issues and organ damage are not uncommon for adults living with sickle cell anemia due to reduced blood flow. Chronic kidney disease can lead to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and is a common cause of death for people with SCD. Tahirah Austin-Muhammad is a mother, a fighter, and a striver who currently has 7% kidney function due to complications that occurred during the birth of her daughter. In the face of this reality she has alot of life to live!
