1st Annual Sickle Cell Disease Fundraiser

1st Annual Sickle Cell Disease Fundraiser

Starting a Sickle Cell Fundraiser to me is personal because i was diagnosed with it at age 4. Sickle cell anemia is a disease passed down through families in which red blood cells form an abnormal sickle or crescent shape. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the body and are normally shaped like a disc.Sickle cell disease is much more common in people of African and Mediterranean descent. It is also seen in people from South and Central America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.Almost all patients with sickle cell anemia have painful episodes (called crises), which can last from hours to days. These crises can cause pain in the bones of the back, the long bones, and the chest.Which means alot of ups and downs with my health. It affects my work, skate life and personal life, but it has yet to stop me from moving on. The reason why i started the fundraiser is to 1. Raise Money 2. Raise Awareness and 3. Encourage people to get Tested. Please help me and Dustin Percell raise money for finding a cure. Thank you
