How YOU Can Contribute to A Good Cause in Support of Sickle Cell Patients
The events purpose was to raise awareness about the lack of federal support for sickle cell disease care, education and research.
We had the pleasure of catching up with Robert L. Mackey III, the president and founder of the foundation.
Robert was inspired to start the foundation by his mother, who the foundation is named after, and aunt. Both women battle against SCD, one of the debilitating conditions included in the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act.
At the event, we all signed the petition to “Declare Sickle Cell Disease a national health priority and support legislation to expand and establish SCD programs.”
I invite you to sign the petition in support of this cause.
