Dear Sickle Cell Supporter:
 
Thank you for your support! Cure Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. is excited about celebrating our 10th year of “Fighting Sickle Cell... and Helping Families.” Despite economic challenges that many face during these times, we are excited about your support of our cause. Even with these economic challenges, families who suffer from chronic illnesses, such as sickle cell disease (SCD) are still in need of our ongoing SUPPORT.

More than nine years ago a family was discouraged that there was very little discussion about the options for a cure. Two parents of a child with SCD, one a physician and one a registered nurse, thought they would try to promote a cure for sickle cell through a web-site, www.curesicklecell.org. Once they arrived in Mississippi they were encouraged by sickle cell families to take up the challenge to do more to educate, advocate and raise awareness about sickle cell disease. Cure Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. held the very first sickle cell walk in Mississippi to respond to the demands of the community. Since then we have held our 5K Walk/Run/Ride every September during Sickle Cell Awareness Month. We have raised thousands of dollars to support families affected by this disease. To date, Mississippians continue to show their support. With the proceeds we continued our mission of “Fighting Sickle Cell & Helping Families” through our education, advocating and raising awareness. We donate to The Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital Sickle Cell Clinic every year to support their patient care fund.

Help us to give a voice to SCD by supporting efforts to help us educate, advocate and raise awareness. It’s time to walk a path toward a cure. September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month and on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27 and our annual Sickle Cell Awareness 5K Walk/Run/Ride. The walk is a competitive and non- competitive 5K (3.1 miles) walk/run/ride for people of all ages and fitness levels. On-site registration for the walk will begin at 3p.m. However, pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The walk will start at 4p.m. in downtown Jackson, MS. Those who have passed away of sickle cell disease will be honored with a special red balloon release and the walk will conclude with a tailgate party. Proceeds will benefit Mississippi families that suffer from sickle cell disease. We look forward to seeing you in September!

Sincerely,

Dee Bookert Nixon Demetrica, RN BSN
