We, the members of the Prosper Foundation For Sickle Cell, encourage you to join our efforts. We learn about many things, share experiences, talk it out, and do what we can to help one another. We encourage others to use their common sense and God-given abilities to ask questions, seek understanding and not fear. If there is anything you are not quite clear on concerning your health, just don't understand the doctor's comments or unsure of certain issues, we will do our best to help you understand, get answers and we will seek referrals and resources for you to follow-up with.

What is Sickle Cell Disease?
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited disease that affects our hemoglobin. Inherited means it is passed from mothers and fathers to their children. Hemoglobin is a special protein substance inside the red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs and takes it to every part of the body. Every person has two copies of the hemoglobin gene. A change in the hemoglobin from the normal hemoglobin type may cause the symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease. Hemoglobin also gives blood its rich red color.
