Sickle Cell Disease Association of America Extends its COVID-19 Emergency Fundraiser
The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America is extending its COVID-19 Emergency Fund Campaign to raise funds and deploy critical resources to nonprofits that serve sickle cell patients and their families through sicklecelldisease.org/covid-19. While we met our initial goal of $100,000 through the generosity of Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT), the need continues to increase.
“We are in uncharted waters with COVID-19, which is creating growing challenges for our sickle cell community. This is a time when our advocacy is most needed,” said Beverley Francis-Gibson, President of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. “We must work together to support those most impacted in our communities.”
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited blood disorder. It alters the flow of hemoglobin – the red blood cell molecule that delivers life-giving oxygen to the body’s organs and tissues – which can cause life-threatening multi-organ failure, debilitating pain, and even death.
