Shakeria has sickle cell anemia. Sickle cell is a disease in which the red blood cells created in the bone marrow produce an abnormal form of hemoglobin that has a difficult time passing through the body’s blood vessels to reach the body’s tissues. Tissue that doesn’t receive normal blood flow will eventually be damaged. Those suffering with this disease experience severe episodes of pain and eventual organ damage. Shakeria must be monitored carefully by her doctors.

Shakeria had the time of her life on her exciting shopping spree at the Westfield Annapolis Mall! She spent an entire day shopping to her heart’s content. It was definitely a day that Shakeria will never, ever forget!
