LAST YEAR'S SCAY AWARD RECIPIENTS
"You all have provided me with so much information. I have learned more from your pages than any doctors visit. Continue to educate us warriors and others."
"I’ve been a mom of a sickle cell warrior for 9 years now and I’ll admit, I don’t always remember all the facts or important details to explain to others about my own son's health. Sickle Cell 101 has helped me stay on track with info, facts, dates, etc."
"Education backed up by facts and reputable sources."
"Most of my life I’ve felt alone when dealing with sickle cell. Most people in my life don’t have to deal with this. They don’t understand the toll it takes on you physically, emotionally, and mentally. Finding this page has helped me to not feel so alone anymore."
"I love that Sickle Cell 101 shares the Warrior Faces stories. It makes me realize that I’m not alone in my battle with SCD. To be honest, when I’m not feeling well, I peruse through Sickle Cell 101’s Instagram page to distract myself and find comfort."
