NEW MEMOIR MOVES READERS FROM PAIN TO PERSEVERANCE
Noted Sickle Cell Disease Advocate Authors Inspiring Story About
Living With Sickle Cell Disease
This is a riveting story about overcoming poverty, racism, abuse, and pain, all while embracing the lessons they teach.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, October 22, 2011: Millions of people world-wide suffer with some form of disability. Some suffer in silence with a disease that is unrecognized, and often overlooked. This disease is Sickle Cell Disease. A disease of the blood, sickle cell causes many complications to the body and lives of people who suffer with it. Often, leading to disability and death, sickle cell disease impacts their lives physically, emotionally, financially, and socially.
In her new book, I Only Cry at Night, living with Sickle Cell Disease, P. Allen Jones outlines the many obstacles she had to face head-on. She tackles the timely topics of sickle cell disease ignorance, overcoming silence caused by shame, and living in-spite of pain. She brings a voice to the ticking bomb that has ached in her bones since birth. Conveying the message of hope, P. Allen Jones takes the reader to the edge of despair, and then leads them to a place she found called peace.
I Only Cry at Night, living with Sickle Cell Disease, is a testament to living past disease and disability, and being more than what’s expected or allowed.
Through personal anecdotes of her own experience, and clear insight, Jones uses I Only Cry at Night, living with Sickle Cell Disease as a narrative that takes the reader on a journey toward self-acceptance. Living past pain, abuse, discrimination and sickle cell disease, this book is less about her sad story, and more about fulfilling life, achievement in-spite of disability, and making the most of it all.
