Sickle cell anemia causes red blood cells to stick to vessel walls, which block blood flow blocking blood flow and preventing oxygen from reaching tissues.

The lack of oxygen can damage organs and cause pain so severe it requires hospitalization.

Although Bryanna Jackson-Frias was born to a different mother from Jordin’s mother, one would never have known with the way the pair acted around each other.

Jordin shared a photo on her Instagram story on Monday an emotional Instagram post that addressed the death of her sister and her two friends.

The American Idol winner wrote,

‘Four Angels in a week. My heart is just so heavy & broken. I’m in shock, numb and feel everything all at the same time. Leah & Rasual (one of my closest friends and her amazing another half who also was a great friend), Bryanna (my step-sister) and Q (my little cousin), you were such bright lights in this crazy world. You made everyone better just by knowing them. And your smiles made anyone’s day better. The world is less sparkly without you in it. Rest In Peace and Power. I love you forever. Find Miles and hug him for me. ♥️ Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Don’t ever skip a chance to tell someone you appreciate them or how much you love them. Please, please continue to cover their families and our family with thoughts and prayers. #unicornsdontdie #sicklecellsux’.

‘Bry went peacefully to Heaven. I can’t help to think that she’s smiling just like this. Thank you all for your prayers’.
