Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Commend Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn congratulated the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc. (SCFG) on its 50th Anniversary of bringing testing, counseling and educational awareness of Sickle Cell Anemia to residents, physicians, nurses and care providers across the state.
“Rosalynn joins me in congratulating you and the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc. (SCFG) on 50 years of outstanding service to the citizens of Georgia. It does not seem that long ago since your father, Dr. Nelson McGhee, Dr. Delutha H. King, Jr., and Xernona Clayton came to me when I was Governor of Georgia, to ask for a match to funds they had raised in response to the infant mortality rate and the growing number of children who died before their 18th birthday. At that time, the average life expectancy for children living with sickle cell was age 16 or younger,” President Carter said in a letter to former SCFG President and CEO Debra McGhee-McCrary.
