In 1971 the Sickle Cell Disease Association of Illinois (SCDAI) was founded under the name Midwest Association for Sickle Cell Anemia (MASCA). As a founding member, SCDAI is a part of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA), a 57 member community-based membership organization, in over 300 communities nationwide and Canada.

The primary mission of SCDAI is to enhance the quality of life for people with sickle cell disease and their families.
