The United Nations and the World Health Organization has declared June 19th World Sickle Cell Awareness Day!! We have our own day y’all.
Congratulations! Right now there is a huge festival in New York (I will be posting info in case you can make it), Cayman Islands, the ATL and all over the world.
Please continue in your efforts for increased knowledge, less stigmatization and increased public awareness with sickle cell. Every little mind that you open helps. You would be surprised how much ignorance is out there. Remember to also wear a touch of something Red. Knowing our genotype, creating an enabling environment medically and socially can also help to spread awareness.
Hug a Sickle Cell Warrior today; show your support and love!
