It might be better to make the pictures into links so that they don't take up the entire page. Remember to put captions describing why the pictures are there.

Why don't you put this diagram on another page and write a paragraph describing what is happening to the cells.

I like what you have done. Now I would like to see the genetic information and a section about treatments and reserach that is being done to help sickle cell patients.
