Cure Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. continues to take up the challenge to do more to educate, advocate and raise awareness about sickle cell disease. CSCF held the very first sickle cell walk 10 years ago in Mississippi to respond to the demands of the community. Since then we have held our 5K Walk/Run/Ride every year in the month September, which is sickle cell awareness month. We have raised thousands of dollars to support families affected by this disease. To date, Mississippians continue to show their support. With your donations we continue our mission of “Fighting Sickle Cell & Helping Families” through our education, advocating and raising awareness.
The importance of donating blood is crucial in preventing SCD complications like stroke and debilitating pain. Many of our Sickle Cell Survivors need to receive blood transfusions monthly to prevent complications. We need you to help us by donating blood regularly. Make a Connection, Make a Difference...Visit a local agency and help save a life by donating blood. Tell them that you want to donate to someone affected by sickle cell disease.
