Do you know anyone who is, or who was afflicted with Sickle Cell Disease?  Or do you know anyone who carries the Sickle Cell trait?

So what are we doing about it?

4.4 million people have sickle-cell disease while an additional 43 million have sickle-cell trait.

About 80% of sickle-cell disease cases are believed to occur in sub-Saharan Africa

2% of newborns in Nigeria were affected by sickle cell anemia, giving a total of 150,000 affected children born every year in Nigeria alone.

Great Ife Alumni Organization is working on an effort to raise awareness of Sickle Cell Disease and raise funds for its cure.  Will you please support us so that together we can improve the lives of thousands of people?
Registration package includes a T-shirt and a wristband
Note: T-shirt sizes cannot be guaranteed beyond Aug 30th

» $25.00 Registration (through 9/27 at 11:59 PM US/Central)

We are counting on your support.

Please spread the word.  Forward this to as many people as you can - your friends, professional associates, extended family, church groups, and anyone else you can think of. 

Unfortunately, this is our disease, but now it's time to be done with it!
