An awe-inspiring first book
by Tyrene Gibson
Mothering the Crescent Moons as a title is grounded in the reality of Tyrene’s journey. The act of mothering implies nurturing, protecting, and guiding. As a mother, her instincts were her source of strength after her daughter’s diagnosis with sickle cell anemia and throughout the process up to her receiving a life-changing transplant.
In sickle cell anemia, the red blood cells are shaped like sickles or crescent moons, inspiring the title.
