Help Us Support Sickle Cell Anemia Research

Sickle cell disease is the most common inherited disorder among African-Americans. One in 12 African-Americans carries a genetic trait for the disease without suffering symptoms, but 1 in 375 babies are born with disease-causing cells. There are currently more than 100,000 individuals with sickle cell disease in the United States alone and millions more worldwide.

We band together today in honor of Jordan West, a special member of the BDPA Philadelphia family, to raise awareness for this condition and contribute to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia - a pioneer in Sickle Cell research that is on the verge of a cure.
