Thank you for your generous donation to the JAYJ Foundation Sickle Cell Initiative.  Your donation will enable the Foundation to fund this initiative which will focus in outreach and education as well as screening of newborns in the Grand'Anse, Jeremie Region of Haiti.

Sickle Cell Disease is a genetic blood disorder that causes red blood cells to change shape and can lead to tissue damage and pain, as well as enlarged spleen, anemia, and other symptoms. It is most common among those of African descent. Not long ago, the life expectancy for children diagnosed with the disease was only 15 years. However, significant progress has been made over the years, primarily in the areas of pain management, resulting in fewer hospitalizations, and an increase in longevity using aggressive treatments such as bone-marrow transplants.

Thank you.
