It took forty plus years of intense agonizing sacrifice and struggle for Christopher A. Davis to heed the call of the Most High. In doing so he found his purpose in producing an extraordinary piece of work. The Invisible Bully: Thriving in a Life with Sickle Cell Anemia tackles the issues that one may face with the disease head on. This book shows the importance of having inner strength and fortitude, a positive disposition, understanding the power of faith in God and in yourself, and more. There is work that must be done for anyone living with a chronic pain disease and or mental illness, if he or she wants to live some semblance of a normal life. The Invisible Bully is exactly what Sickle Cell is and can be for some who are born into this unfortunate circumstance. But there is an upside to having the right perspective when viewing the world.

Creativity, humor, wisdom, pain, tears, all wrapped up in a healthy dose of reality, gives readers a totally unique opportunity to learn something new. Perhaps you will too!!
About the author
Christopher Davis is a Sickle Cell WARRIOR who has seen the very dark depths to which this invisible disease can take a person. Born in 1978, Chris was the first patient in the study of SCD at CHOP in Philadelphia. Not having heard of any publication about the struggles of what people with sickle cell anemia go through, it was left to Chris to apply his writing ability to communicate to the world what time it is. He is a proud father who has supported his children despite the circumstances. Life isn't finished, nor is he done with living. There is plenty more to accomplish and experience before it is time to go.
