What do we have to do?


 

In college I raised $52 for cancer. I walked miles in my achy body because I supported cancer research, but also because it was the most relatable cause I could find. Like sickle cell, cancer patients called the hospital their second home.

Everyone cares about something outside of themselves. It’s the definition of humanity. It’s the reason there are advocates who walk miles for a cause.

However, I have found an undeniable shortage of people advocating for sickle cell. Our biggest supporters are the ones fighting with and for sickle cell disease, a blood disorder that produces misshapen red blood cells that deprives oxygen to very organs needed to survive. Alongside us are few; only those close enough to have a personal stake in our health.
