Gideon Ogungbemi says the pain caused by sickle cell disease is indescribable.
“I can’t put it into words but I know it’s something terrible that I would never want any of my friends to experience,” says Ogungbemi, 28.
The pain often drove Ogungbemi to the emergency room, where he says doctors gave him morphine or Dilaudid.
