Healthcare providers, researchers, and advocates
Sick Cells’ mission is to elevate the voices of the sickle cell disease (SCD) community and their stories of resilience. In highlighting the grave disparities this community faces, we hope to influence decision-makers and propel change.
Sick Cells envisions that this narrative work will achieve the following:
-Ignite public interest making sickle cell a public health concern
-Humanize SCD, which is a relatively invisible disease that affects people of many races and ethnicities
-Inspire the general public, who do not typically recognize their day-to-day encounters with SCD, to advocate for SCD
-Influence policy makers, educators, employers, healthcare administrators and healthcare providers to act to improve treatment and care for the SCD population
-Drive research and drug development which will lead to better treatments
-Empower the sickle cell community, regardless of hemoglobin type, to share their stories and know that they are not alone
