Our Commitment

If the narrative won’t change, we will join the community that want to make it change. Not just for ourselves, or for our children but for all the generations who have come before and are to come after us.

We are stronger together than we are apart. We want to unite those who suffer from sickle cell anemia disease in any form that includes the beta thalassemia family and trait carriers with families inside or outside of the sickle diagnosis.

You are more than a diagnosis, it may be a piece of who you are, but it will never be all you are, you were born a warrior.

We will change the narrative, together.

What is Our Main Goal

 Together we aim to connect with sickle cell group chapters, local healthcare, and local educational institutions to help raise awareness for sickle cell anemia patients and take part in an open dialogue about advocating for your health.
