A Nigerian couple have become childless after all three of their kids died as a result of sickle cell anemia.
They lost their daughter first. Two years later, they lost a son. Their last son died three days ago, after years of living with sickle cell.
A Twitter user who knows the family shared the story and cautioned lovers to be aware of their genotype before talking about marriage.
“I lost a friend in sec school bcuz she was an SS. 2yrs after, her brother died too. Just yesterday, the last son we thought would survive also had crisis and died. What sort of stupid love would make u risk the lives of ur children? Before you say Yes, ask for their Genotype.”
