Here Are Ways to Help Friends With Sickle Cell Disease
Whenever I meet new people and tell them I have sickle cell disease (and explain what it is), they often ask how they can help.
June 19 is World Sickle Cell Awareness Day, so I thought it appropriate to discuss ways that you can help the sickle cell community, including friends who may have the disease.
Because many of the affects of sickle cell disease are internal, the sad reality is that there isn’t much you can do to prevent patients from experiencing them. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t help at all.
