September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month, which makes it a good time learn more about the facts and signs of sickle cell anemia. It's an inherited form of anemia — a condition in which there aren't enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen throughout your body. For most people, there's no cure, but treatments can relieve pain and help prevent problems associated with the disease. What do you know about sickle cell anemia?
Nazhi Thee Baker, Social Kidpreneur, uses her amazing organically made baked goods, and service to families in need to Change the World.
Nazhi Thee Baker, offers her famous organically prepared treats as an alternative to traditionally sugary and carb filled baked goods. Nazhi Forrest has battled Sickle Cell Anemia since birth. Uniquely she and both her sisters fight the rare affliction.
Nahzi was inspired to find organic alternatives after her older sister suffered a massive stroke in 2014. Nazhi began educating herself about the history of Sickle Cell. She learned about what are called “Trigger Foods” that if eliminated could help people living with Sickle Cell stay healthy.
Nazhi took her natural talent and love for baking and began to explore New Ways to make the treats she loved in a Healthy Way while keeping the taste. Armed with her Big Sweet Tooth and organic and natural ingredients, Nazhi developed what is now her famous Mini Pound Cakes, Pecan Caramel Pound Cake, 50 Shades of Pink Strawberry Cake and more.tastebuds happy!
