Sickle Cell Disease Coalition
When a doctor does understand sickle cell disease, . . . the care is superb.
What is Sickle Cell Disease?
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes red blood cells to form into a crescent shape, like a sickle. These cells break apart easily, clump together, and stick to the walls of blood vessels, blocking the flow of blood, which can lead to a range of serious health issues.
The Sickle Cell Disease Coalition is composed of public health, research, and provider organizations, patient groups, faith-based organizations, federal agencies, industry representatives, and foundations with an interest in Sickle Cell Disease.
