Sickle Cycle is an organization dedicated to advocacy and awareness about the complications of Sickle Cell Disease. Our goal is to support those living with the disease by empowering individuals and families to get involved in the sickle cell community through education, research, fundraising, and volunteerism.
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes red blood cells to form in a sticky crescent shape which impacts the flow of oxygen throughout the body. As a result, the disease can cause pain crisis, organ damage, and other series complications. It is the most common blood disorder and the main four types of sickle cell are the following: Hemoglobin SS disease, Hemoglobin SC disease, Hemoglobin SB+ (beta) thalassemia, Hemoglobin SB 0 (Beta-zero) thalassemia.
