US Airforce Captain Lukiah Mulumba featured on MSNBC ~ “My daughter Carol beats the odds against sickle cell anemia. We were afraid she would never make it! The bone marrow and cord blood transplant from her HERO younger brother helped save her life. Thanks to the National Marrow Donor Program and the Cord Blood Registry , today my daughter Carol is healthy and helping raise awareness of bone marrow and cord blood transplant in sickle cell patients.”

A touching moment with Captain Lukiah talking about the support her Dad had given her through Education and love.


Captain Lukiah was recently honored in Uganda at the First Ugandan Diaspora Social Networking Event, for her great contribution to the fight against Sickle Cells and for being a mentor and inspiration to Ugandan and East African women. Check out her Bio and Profile here:

    I was blessed that I was offered that option with my last born. I know it’s there if ever it’s needed. I hope more Mothers will take advantage of this service where it is available to them.

      Lutchi disse:Uma Sugestão: assista um filme inglês chamado “The Damned United” fala sobre a história verídica do técnico de futebol Brian Clough que trocou o pequeno Derby County pelo rival e poderoso(nos anos70)Leeds United.Sem dúvida um dos melhores filmes sobre futebol que já assisti.Abraços!

      I think you’ve damaged your knee pretty badly. The first thing you will need is rest & stay off it, completely if you can. Keep it elevated and alternate with ice and heat. You probably have swelling and fluid since you say that you can’t bend it and you may have damaged a ligament or cartilage, (see Meniscus tear) It’s difficult to say what the damage is but it would be best for you to have an MRI or at least an Xray or ultrasound. Goodluck

      Thanks so much for sharing your memories and thoughts of Ronnie Lane. His music, in particular the “One for the Road” album, helped me through some tough times, and I count my one brief meeting with him as one of the more special moments of my life. This was a wonderful tribute.
