Image
Charles Da-Silva is an American businessman who is adding the title of author to his resume having been able to turn his life around through self evaluation. A practice that has seen his life experience many successes in his businesses and personally and now he has written his first book titled The Unknown, which is the first of a 14 part series of The Self Evaluation: A Decision Series where he shares the secrets he discovered that helped move him from living an average life to one that has become rich in relationships and knowledge.

Children who have the disease start to display symptoms early on in life from between 5 months to 1 year; these may vary and could be either mild or severe. Symptoms include:  a) Pain Crisis, b) Jaundice, c) Anaemia, d) Acute Chest Syndrome, e) Pooling (Enlarged Spleen).

Having said that, Sickle Cell Disease manifests itself in many ways that affect both boys and girls in the same way; for instance both sexes can
