The Cedric Sickle Cell (CSC) Support Group 4 Kids is a nonprofit organization for kids with sickle cell anemia. It strives to increase the awareness of the Sickle Cell Disease itself but also address the many needs of patients and their immediate family members. The CSC Support Group 4 Kids is dedicated to bringing awareness to the community and on-going support to kids with Sickle Cell Disease.

We here at CSC Support Group 4 Kids, understand that your time is valuable. We appreciate your financial seed as well as your time seed.

CSC Support Group 4 Kids came into existence as a response to real life experiences. Vanessa has dedicated her life to raising awareness in the community and trying to find help for families and children facing Sickle Cell Disease. Her youngest son, Cedric, was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease at the age of 18 months. His bloodwork at birth seemed normal but by his first year he began to have fevers, seizures and swelling of the hands and feet. He was sent to a hematologist who retested him and found that he had Sickle Cell Disease. Over the next few years her family and she faced multiple doctor visits, hospital stays and surgeries. When going through this difficult time she realized that her primary support group was her family. This thought got her thinking that the community could benefit from having a Sickle Cell Disease support group, especially for the children.
