On February 28, 2017, Sick Cells proudly became a nonprofit. We saw the need to eliminate stigma associate with SCD to shape public policy and improve the quality of life for the SCD community. We are committed to diversifying the sickle cell voice to include all types and faces of SCD. Telling every type of sickle cell story is key to understanding this complex condition and the people that it touches.
After almost two years of working as a nonprofit, Sick Cells has grown legs and is ready to start running. We are incredibly grateful for all our volunteer staff and the achievements that we have accomplished to date. We look forward to the future for the SCD community and making this condition a household name.
