why

People should support this Cause because there are numerous amounts of people being born daily with this inherited blood disease who don't understand its severity. Although, there's no cure for sickle cell anemia, being diagnosed with this disease isn't a death sentence. This event will help educate the local community about sickle cell disease, its affects, and will help to equip people with the tools and literature needed to help combat the disease.
