Services For People With Sickle Cell

One thing I'm always looking for are services for people suffering with Sickle Cell Disease. There is one organization that has come to my attention and I want to highlight what they're doing. I offer my support and cheer them on as they do their very important work, supporting the needs of people with Sickle Cell Disease.

Ok, just imagine being sick, having no where to live and needing someone to care.

The Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee is showing how to care AND doing something about the situation. They are in the process of preparing a transition home for 6 adult males living with Sickle Cell Disease.

The Carpenter House, named after Mr. Kenneth Carpenter who co-founded the Sickle Cell Walk in the Tennessee area and who donated the property, is being renovated in preparation for ribbon cutting ceremonies soon.

The Carpenter House will give young men with Sickle Cell Disease a place to call home. This will be a place where they will receive compassion and support to stay healthy, and live in a nice home.

In addition to The Carpenter House, Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee provides services like providing gas cards (for doctor appointment travel), utility bill assistance (when we get sick our bills suffer too) and burial assistance (do I need to explain this one?).

Donations to help this effort would be greatly appreciated. See how you can help or get more information about what's going on at Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee . 
God bless you Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee for caring and being help for people with Sickle Cell Disease in the Tennessee area. Now, let's work on a transition home for women with sickle cell disease!!!!!!!!
