Velvet L. Brown-Watts, is the Founder-Chairperson of Supporters of Families with Sickle Cell Disease, Inc. Supporters (as it is affectionately known) is a community-based Oklahoma nonprofit organization that has assisted families living with sickle cell diseases since 2004.

Supporters is an IRS 501(c)(3) designated nonprofit agency. Supporters is the only comprehensive grassroots family support and advocacy organization in Oklahoma that serves as a center of contact and referral service for community resources to assist individuals with sickle cell and related diseases. Supporters promotes self-care management, testing, education, research and development, and economic self-sufficiency as key approaches to empowerment and effective management of sickle cell disease. Our vision is to break the cycle of the disease by increasing self-efficacy and improving the overall quality of life for children, adults and families living with sickle cell diseases.
