“Our mission is to improve the quality of life of those suffering with sickle cell disorders and to inform and educate the general population. Our goal is to promote awareness of the genetic causes and health effects of sickle cell anemia and related conditions; to promote improved access to care through raising the number of sickle cell educated clinicians; to remove the stigma that sickle cell clients are drug seekers which impede the ability to provide sensitive and quality care.”
