Born a healthy baby boy on December 31, 2013. Or so it was perceived. Noah crawled walked and talked at average milestone ages. He raced to catch up with his brother who’s 4 years older than him and is now a great mentor to his little brother 3 years his junior. The three are inseparable. Noah has a vibrant spirit and an abundance of love for his family. At the age of three, Noah was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. The family was in absolute shock. Shock from not recognizing the signs and shock from not understanding what to expect for his future. Thanks to The Falling Angels Sickle Cell Foundation our family did not feel alone and were able to better understand what was happening in Noah’s body. Falling Angels was also integral in lifting Noah’s spirits during the holidays which, in turn, made us all happy. We are extremely grateful for this awesome foundation, the knowledge they share and the support they give. In spite of the challenges Noah remains a trooper and he has learned how to articulate his levels of pain. Like most children Noah does not like bloodwork. Noah questions all phlebotomists’ credentials before allowing them to touch him. Noah is known for his smile, caring heart, intelligence and honesty. If you do not want to know the absolute truth, don’t ask Noah! He strives to be the very best at anything he attempts and loves being recognized for his accomplishments in school. Noah’s strength is inspiring to his family and everyone he encounters. When he says “I love you to infinity”, he means it and we feel it.
