Its a very sad disease. You are basically brought up, knowing that you ll die before your 30s, the best a bit more, if you are very carefull. What do with your life ? Start a family?

I recently learned that I have Thalassemia Minor. I inherited it from my paternal side, and I guess it is from my grandfather who is a native of the Marmara region.
