• To work with developing countries and change the Sickle Cell narrative from no option to hopeful.
This community raises awareness to prevent Sickle Cell disease from spreading to the next generation.

In this community, people living with Sickle Cell disease can interact, share their stories, and find a mentor or mentor someone.
They can express their feelings, pains and desires on things the medical community should do for better treatment and care.
