From age 6, Lenabell McClelland Bell experienced weeks of excruciating pain in her arms, legs, back, and chest, recurring every few months, often requiring hospitalization, making steady employment impossible. At age 20, her pain crises were diagnosed as sickle-cell disease, from which she would almost surely die before age 40. At age 38 she became the author's patient--impoverished, addicted to opiates needed for pain, facing impending death. He invited her to become an experimental subject in efforts to make sickle-cell pain crises less frequent and less severe. For 45 years she played pioneering roles in research studies published in major scientific journals. Remarkably, she survived to age 83! This affectionate memoir describes Lenabell's extraordinary life and the enduring friendship that flourished between this African-American woman and her white doctor.
