Patient Leader

I am an advocate for improved treatment, greater research and patient-centered care. The response to my memoir prompted me to create the Sickle International Family Organization as a structured way to bring people of like minds together to advocate for uniform standards of care and an equitable commitment to research, and to raise awareness among the public, As an individual living with Sickle cell Disease I feel a strong sense of urgency for action! I hope by raising awareness and educating on a national level, we can create a synergy that will multiply our efforts and create real progress in battling this disease and to eradicate the misconceptions about Sickle Cell Disease.
