If you are a sickle cell warrior or a caregiver of a sickle cell warrior living in South Carolina and your family is in need of masks, please email us at email@example.com.
We have volunteers making masks for our warriors and their families and we will mail you your masks upon your request as supplies last.

We are thankful for our sponsors for their generous donations that allows us to provide support to our sickle cell warriors and their families during COVID19. Our local Pepsi Bottling Company donated cases of water and gatorade for our families. Hydration is so important to our sickle cell warriors and this will help support this need. Thank you, Pepsi.
We are thankful to Global Blood Therapeutics for all that they do in support of sickle cell disease. We were a recipient of a grant from GBT which allows us to provide masks and the replenishment of cleaning supplies and other necessities.
