Is There a Cure?
There is no universally available cure for SCD. Regular medical care, adequate nutrition and hydration, and the avoidance of infections are essential steps for SCD self-management.
How Does The Sickle Cell Association—West Alabama Help?
We work to increase community awareness of SCD and SCT through education, genetic counseling, and screening and detection. We serve individuals who are affected or at-risk of sickle cell disease in nine west Alabama counties – Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Marion, Pickens, Sumter, Tuscaloosa, Winston.
