    ICYMI, a new movie premiered just last month -- one that's devoted to raising awareness and supporting all sickle cell warriors and their families. 

    The motion picture, Dazzling Mirage, which was was brought to the big screen by internationally renown Nigerian filmmaker Tunde Kelani, opened to rave reviews at the Muson Center in Lagos on November 7, 2014. An adaptation of Olayinka Abimbola Egbokhare's eponymous novel, Dazzling Mirage tells the story of Funmiwo, a "talented, young sickle-cell sufferer who overcomes social stigma and prejudice to achieve her dreams." Throughout the film, Funmiwo is faced with many challenges dealing with romantic relationships, her career, and her pregnancy. 

    While the movie has not been released in American theaters, keep a look out for it in the next few months, as you may be able to rent it through Netflix and/or buy it online. However you can, show support for this movie, so that more like this will be made, furthering the cause of sickle cell awareness. You can also use this as a motivator to start your own campaigns of awareness: If you don't see things like this being made by American media outlets, don't wait for someone else to maybe get involved, create your own content and share it with the world.
