Daniel Nwosu, 22, was born with sickle cell disease.
He has had seven strokes which left him paralysed – but with regular physio he’s learned to walk again.
His friends – Alwyn Dorkenoo and Olaoluwa Ayoade – didn’t know much about the condition or how it affected their mate.
So for World Sickle Cell Awareness Day, Daniel sat them down to reveal the truth about living with the disease.
