A Memorial Fund has been set up in honor of Rick D. Taylor with the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation of Georgia. You can help break the cycle of this hereditary disease that afflicts 1 out of every 500 African Americans.
On Common Ground News staffer Sharlene Brown has witnessed the disease up close. She pays tribute to the life of Rick Taylor, who was her brother-in-law. She shares her family’s story in the 2013 fall issue of Metro Atlanta’s Top Docs health magazine at www.ocgnews.com and mdswhocare.com.
