At Sickle-Cell.com we empower patients and caregivers to take control of sickle cell disease by providing a platform to learn, educate, and connect with peers and healthcare professionals.
Sickle cell disease can have an enormous impact on the lives of patients and their loved ones. Whether you have sickle cell yourself or care for someone who does, Sickle-Cell.com strives to provide you with tools and resources to help manage SCD. Although there is no cure for sickle cell disease, we hope the information provided by patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals at Sickle-Cell.com that will help improve your quality of life.
NOTE: Only you and your doctor can decide which treatments are right for you. Do not stop taking or change a treatment or prescription medicine, or the way you use them, without first consulting your doctor.
