The Sickle Cell Foundation of Alberta Board of Directors are dedicated volunteers serving the sickle cell community. The Board meets once per month to plan events, understand current issues facing members, oversee finances, and strategize on organizational growth. Our current directors are:
Vice President - Operations & Southern Alberta
Vice President - Administration & Northern Alberta
President - Research & Education
The only known cure for Sickle Cell Disease is a stem cell transplant (or bone marrow transplant). Due to the difficulty in finding an identical match and the significant risks involved in this procedure, including life-threatening complications, it is rarely an option for sickle cell patients.
