Sojourners Lodge #483 chose to make an amazing impact by donating $1,200 (from their Lodge Charity Account) to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA)! “We have one brother who has a 13 year old son affected with this disease who requires two blood transfusions per month.”
The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America – Michigan Chapter provides education, assistance and advocacy for individuals affected by sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease effects every blood vessel, organ and system in the body. Severity varies by each person but it commonly causes terrible pain and it often leads to a shorter life-span because of its vast effects on the bodies systems.
