SCMA is looking to work with other Sickle Cell Advocacy groups because it will take tremendous funding than one organization can provide to change healthcare for Sickle Cell disease(SCD) patients all across the USA. So, we are asking the various SCD support groups and others to partner with us and sponsor the training of however many advocates they can afford to sponsor, each group according to their financial ability.

Once their trained advocates start helping patients in the community, all the credit belongs to whichever organization sponsored those particular advocates, and all the data we will collect regarding how many patients these advocates help, will be credited to those organizations.

So EACH organization gets to look good for the advocates they sponsored and the patients they help every year. We at SCMA simply help to train the advocates and mentor them over the years. 


We hope you join us in this effort to change healthcare for the Sickle Cell community, whether as a patient, an advocate or through your generous financial support. May you be blessed as you join us in doing some good. 

TRANSFORMATIVE and QUALITY healthcare for Sickle Cell patients.
