I'd never heard of that disease before. It's a remarkable story.

Sickle cell is a very common condition, but only among people of Caribbean and African decent i believe, and which can be fatal.. credit to Ade that he's managed to achieve so much with such a condition.

Great article. I knew of him but not that he had the disease. Brave lad and typical of RL that he just gets on with it.

Not a nice thing to have at all. Well done to him, he must have few really bad times.

For those interested in this sort of thing (evolution and all that) the disease has persisted in Africa because, purely coincidentally, it can confer a degree of immunity to malaria.

He made a very positive impression in his time at Featherstone. He's obvioulsy done the same at the Skolars (I do wish they were the Scholars).

I'd heard of this disease but didn't realise how devastating it can be. He must be one tough individual!
