I returned to the island in May 2017. I was staying at our sister’s house, helping her out with work on the house.
One day I overheard a discussion occurring on the local radio talk show. It was about sickle cell disease.
A public health official said that sickle cell carriers shouldn’t be working outside in the sun and the elements.
I relayed this information to our mother but she did not show any interest or concern upon hearing the news.
I relayed the information to Leslie as well, however, he didn’t seem pleased with the notion of changing careers.
