Sickle Cell Anemia Awareness of San Francisco (SCAASF)

1307 Evans Ave.
San Francisco, California, United States
Email   Phone   Web  

Sickle Cell Anemia Awareness of San Francisco (SCAASF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that came into existence in 2014 after our founder’s son Kareem M. Jones passed away.

Our mission is to bring about a greater awareness and advocate for improved healthcare. Awareness is important for the understanding of one’s own Sickle Cell status as well as being aware of new therapies and legislation.

Our Goals:
We are reaching out for support, sponsorship and partnerships with various organizations in the Hematology/Oncology world, i.e. Foundation of Sickle Cell Research, (www.fscdr.org); Sickle Cell Natural Healing, (www.ssnaturalhealing.com); Global Blood Therapeutics (www.globalbloodtx.com). Our goals are to educate, counsel, and advocate for patients through various resources along with the dissemination of information & literature about the disease and its progress. We hope to create positive dialogue between patients and the medical industry to understand their needs in more detail and to gain an element of trust.

With our efforts and your support, we can get this disease the recognition it so desperately needs so we too may have a stand alone Sickle Cell Anemia Care & Research Network in the San Francisco. Help us make this disease a disease of the past and not the future.
