49er Jeremiah Attaochu looks to his sister, Glory, for inspiration. She has sickle cell anemia.Glory: Yeah, I'm fine. I just came to a doctor's appointment. About to get some fluids before I go home.Jeremiah: Okay. That's good.Glory: They’re setting me up. Alright, talk to you later.Jeremiah: Bye, Glory. Love you.Jeremiah: She's trying to stay on top of her health. Like I think she was in the hospital about a week ago for about an extended period time. It was probably some of the worst pain she's had since having sickle cell her whole life. So now it's getting to a point where she's a 29-year-old woman, and it's starting to be a bigger factor on her life.Jeremiah: She's not somebody to feel sorry for herself. She's never complaining, crying, ‘woe is me,' none of that. She carries her cross with her head up. A lot of people can't do that. To me, it's an inspiration to me.
