Realtor with 8 Years on SCFA

Reason for joining SCFA:

I want to help improve the support that is available for Sickle Cell Clients and families. I also hope to encourage people living with sickle cell to become engaged with this growing community and to raise awareness about this disorder.


Did You Know?

The only known cure for Sickle Cell Disease is a stem cell transplant (or bone marrow transplant). Due to the significant risks involved in this procedure, including life-threatening complications, it is rarely an option for sickle cell patients.
