Celebrate World Sickle Cell Awareness Day!
This year on June 19, 2020, we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of World Sickle Cell Day! June 19th was officially designated as World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. The international awareness day is observed annually with the goal to increase public knowledge and an understanding of sickle cell disease, and the challenges experienced by patients and their families and caregivers.
We are asking our supporters, friends, family, neighbors and community to wear a red mask and/or red attire — the official SCD color — to spark conversations about sickle cell. We are also asking if you can take photos of yourself in the attire and post them on social media. #MaskUp4SickleCell #PHSSCA #WorldSickleCellDay #ShinetheLightonSickleCell
