CHKD Radiothon Day 1: Tymiere's Song

November 7, 2018

We met Tymiere last year and it has been a pleasure getting to know him. When Tymiere was diagnosed with sickle cell disease, his family moved to Virginia specifically because of our hospitals. He is treated at CHKD and is really involved in their activities and even helped design the teen room!  He LOVES Star Wars and music – he has written songs and plays the viola to help get through his diagnoses. His mom says that these opportunities to speak about CHKD make Tymiere really happy and give him a sense of purpose. Listen to the song he wrote to help people who are battling depression or feeling down!
