September - Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month (2012)
It all begins this week.
The New York Mets is sponsoring a wonderful event at Citi Field Stadium on September 8, 2012. New Yorkers will see, hear and support Sickle Cell Disease awareness through their favorite sport, baseball.
On September 15, 2012, The Hina Patel Foundation is sponsoring a Walk/Run to support Sickle Cell Awareness in California.

The month is full of activities and events to bring awareness to sickle cell disease, as well as, much needed funds to many sickle cell disease related non-profit organizations for the services they provide.
Whatever you do this month to support Sickle Cell Disease Awareness, know that there are people suffering all over the world with no voice, no influence or power. They rely on people like you and me to SPEAK OUT, STAND UP, GIVE our TIME, TALENT & MONEY to support awareness and services for people with Sickle Cell Disease.
I don't have a lot of money, but as long as I have breath I will lend my voice, and anything else that doesn't hurt, to people living with Sickle Cell Disease.
