I’m no scientist, but I ended up learning a lot about blood when I was young.  I have—or had—an inherited condition called thalassemia major.  My medical charts have all the details.  I don’t need to go over it.  Suffice it to say, I had a fairly serious version of the condition and had to get regular blood transfusions.  And because the transfusions raised my iron levels, I had to get something called chelation therapy.  And I had to worry about dying before my parents.  And leaving my little sister, Gina, all by herself to deal with everything.

Along came Modern Blood.

Find out in this episode of Storyfeather.
