It's wise to take some time to recognize these possibilities and make decisions that promote the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones. June is such a time.

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders that cause red blood cells to become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle”. The sickle cells die early, which causes a constant shortage of red blood cells or they get stuck in small blood vessels and clog the blood flow. Both of these conditions can cause pain and other serious problems such infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. SCD has become a world-wide health concern, and this day is promoted to bring attention to this health condition.
