  • Ferriscan – A test for iron overload in a child with S.C.D.  This scan provides crucial information to the patient’s doctors to help them best treat the children.  The scan is expensive and usually not covered by insurance plans, so most will opt out of this very beneficial test.
  • Luncheon –  We provide a monthly meal to 15 to 20 patients and their families during an all-day check-up. During a physically and emotionally exhausting day for the patients and their families, they can rest easy during lunch, knowing that we are taking care of one necessity of their day.
  • Education/awareness –  To help a child with S.C.D learn the quality of life. As the only foundation servicing S.C.D in our community, we are sometimes the only resource for these children and their families outside of their doctors who can provide insight into this disease and how best to approach it. Educating about suicide prevention is critically important.
  • Blood drive – Sickle cell patients can require a monthly blood transfusion to survive.
  • Financial assistance – Patients in need of assistance with prescriptions, electricity, and gas.
