Eda's Instagram Takeover


"I need much exercise because of the prosthesis in my hip and shoulder. I enjoy working out, but everyday isn’t the same when you have sickle cell. I try to train three times a week, but I can’t train if I’m in the hospital. Then, when I leave the hospital, I have to take time recovering. But I do enjoy working out and doing the exercises on my own. It makes me feel strong, like I can move forward and get better.

"I spend my day off to get a blood transfusion. I used to get transfusions once a month, but for the past two months, I’ve had to get them more often. I’m also pregnant, and that’s why the doctors believe I need more blood!"
