Community Health fair

Community Health Fair by the Methodist Sickle Cell Center
Sickle Cell Disease has been lost in the shuffle of illnesses people in our community battle for many years now. Many of you who are now reading this article are wondering what Sickle Cell Disease is. Which adds to the point. So what is Sickle Cell?
Sickle Cell Disease is a blood disorder that causes one’s red blood cells to become dehydrated and sickle-shaped. Which is nowhere near normal and causes a lot of complications. This is a genetic illness, which means that the only way to have Sickle Cell is to be born with is. Which is why education on Sickle Cell is so important! Methodist has done so much to help teach those affected by Sickle Cell about the disease. Doing so with the goal of breaking the sickle cycle. Knowing about Sickle Cell helps people avoid making decisions that will cause more kids to be born with the disease.
Sickle Cell causes many complications n someone’s life. Being that their red blood cells are abnormal, it is hard for those cells to flow through a person’s blood veins. Which causes A LOT of pain when what is called a “Sickle Cell Crisis” flares. This is the main problem someone living with this disease face, but there a many more. To list a few, many deals with bone deterioration, organ failure, blindness, depression, and anxiety, etc.
Let’s come out and get educated! Thus helping our community #BeAmazing! See you all there!
