Official Sickle Cell Ribbon

Official Sickle Cell Ribbon

SCDAwarenessRibbon-store - CopyHey everyone,

Have you seen the official ribbon for sickle cell disease? This was unveiled at the last National Convention of SCDAA. It’s been on their website for a few months, and now it’s available for everyone.

Plus you can purchase the cloth ribbon from their site for $5.00. Anyway, here it is in all it’s wonderful glory. I like all the little sickled cells dancing in the ribbon. What do you think?
