Sickle Cell 101 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that specializes in sickle cell education on social media and other platforms. Our slogan is, "education + awareness" because we strongly believe these two factors are vital contributors to the progression of the disorder, with the end goal of a universal cure.

 

Through education we are able to equip those affected by sickle cell, around the world, with a comprehensive understanding of the disorder. Equally, by raising awareness, our goal is for sickle cell to become a household name to encourage genetic testing, generate funding, and further research efforts.
