Sickle Cell Action Network (SCAN) is a non-profit organization started in 2015 to normalize the conversation around issues that plague the sickle cell community. We believe that the internal cultural stigmas have thwarted the efforts of caregivers, medical professionals and educators who desperately need the continued support to better serve the sickle cell community. By standing on our three internal pillars, we hope to minimize the mental and physical suffering incurred by sickle cell patients nationwide.
