WHY DONATE? With nearly 3,000 people in Michigan living with sickle cell and approximately 1,600 of those people living in the metro Detroit area, our programs and services impact individuals, their families, and the community at large.
Sickle cell affects three times as many people as cystic fibrosis in the U.S., yet receives approximately one-third the funding. Your support helps provide year-round education for physicians, patients and caregivers; appropriate medical care, trait testing campaigns, self-sustainability work, and more. Modern medicine has the capacity to help people with sickle cell thrive. Individuals living with the condition want improved quality of life and it’s our mission to make that happen.
