A weekend of awareness and action for 2020 World Sickle Cell Day FRIDAY, JUNE 19: #MaskUp4SickleCell for World Sickle Cell Day Grab a red mask and get ready to #MaskUp4SickleCell on World Sickle Cell Day. This is a day to create awareness and inspire action among individuals with sickle cell and the allies in our community. On Friday, June 19, put on your red mask (whatever red cloth you have handy to use), and head over to Facebook to post a selfie. Have fun and edit your photo with a note about what your mask represents for your life with sickle cell and then write a post about what's #BehindTheMask . Invite your friends and family to join in supporting the cause by posting themselves in red masks, too. We'll have a special frame you can use on Facebook. You can also take a screenshot of that photo to post on Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat. Be sure to tag @sicklecellmichigan so we can share your post. Watch our social media pages next week for the latest updates and how to join the full campaign. You can also click here to download a step-by-step guide on how to participate. SATURDAY, JUNE 20TH: Virtual Graduation Open House Congratulations Class of 2020! We're recognizing our graduating sickle cell Warriors with a Virtual Open House on Saturday, June 20 as part of our World Sickle Cell Day weekend. Do you know someone who should be included? To be eligible, the student must have sickle cell, live in Michigan and be a December 2019 or Spring/Summer 2020 graduate from high school, college or trade school. Children of individuals with sickle cell who are graduating within these time frames are also eligible. The graduate will need to complete an information form and send us photos no later than midnight, Sunday, May 31. For all the details, please visit our Class of 2020 page. Spread the word! SUNDAY, JUNE 21: Sickle Sabbath We invite you to mark our first Sickle Sabbath in your place of worship on Saturday, June 20, or Sunday June 21 (depending on when you observe your sabbath). While sickle cell disease predominately affects people of African, Latino and Middle Eastern descent, it can affect anyone of any ethnicity or nationality. All faiths and denominations are encouraged to join us in educating their congregations about sickle cell disease and the importance of knowing your sickle cell trait status. Sickle Sabbath flyers, fact sheets and a social media graphic are available on our web site at www.scdaami.org/sicklesabbath . Participation is free, however, love offerings that day are welcome to support our education, outreach and advocacy services. To join the event, talk with your worship leader or health ministry and share the Sickle Sabbath materials for distribution to your congregation members. We also encourage you to post and share the information on social media pages. For additional information, please email us or call 313.864.4406. Have questions? Need info? Want to send an idea for an educational topic? Contact us at info@scdaami.org or 313.864.4406.

    Click here to help us celebrate Let’s Go Let’s Go Click here to Celebrate! Sickle cell is a complex biopsychosocial condition affecting every blood vessel, organ, and system in the body. While its severity impacts each individual uniquely, sickle cell’s most common visible presentation is excruciating, unpredictable pain. However, the condition’s less visible complications of continual hemolytic anemia and vascular and organ damage are silent, but life-shortening, ramifications suffered by every individual with sickle cell. To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key. SCDAA-MI provides education, assistance, and advocacy for individuals living with and families affected by sickle cell disease.
