Sickle cell causes a person’s red blood cells to die more quickly than the red blood cells of a person who does not have sickle cell. Their eyes become yellow due to a substance that is released when the red blood cells break down.
Securing sufficient and steady funding is our biggest challenge. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we are desperately in need of your generous donations! All funds donated to MTS Sickle Cell Foundation go directly to creating awareness and providing support to families affected by SCD. Your donations are tax deductible!
