We bring information to people with sickle cell and their families in Washington State. By partnering with local health care providers, the state's newborn screening program, families, schools and communities, we ensure that all those affected by sickle cell have access to education, resources, counseling and coordinated care.

About Sickle Cell Disease

Normal red blood cells are round, almost like doughnuts. They move  through small blood vessels in the body to deliver oxygen, which is  carried by a substance called hemoglobin. In sickle cell disease, one  little change in the hemoglobin can cause it to form long rods when it  gives away oxygen. For more information click here.
