In America over 100,000 individuals suffer from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and 1 in every 12 African American babies are born with the Sickle Cell Trait (SCT). What is Sickle Cell? Sickle Cell Disease is a severe form of anemia which is inherited. SCD occurs when there is low oxygen levels in red blood cells and they become crescent or "sickle" shaped and sticky as opposed to the normal round flexible shape of a red blood cell. 

About DreamsiCkle Kids Foundation

Misson

  

Dreamsickle’s Mission is to be a part of the advancement of education and awareness for Sickle Cell in Nevada. Dreamsickle Kids Foundation aims to #MAKESICKLECELLPOPULAR in the Valley by hosting events like Blood and Bone Marrow Drives, raising funds for children and families , and being a part of long term change in the community and health care system to benifit the Sickle Cell Population of Nevada.

Vision

  To be a community leader in advocating for those affected by Sickle Cell. Our vision will be achieved by bringing communities together through social events that provide support, education, resources and awareness for Sickle Cell Disease.

What is Sickle Cell?


SCD is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. Healthy red blood cells are round, and they move through small blood vessels to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. In someone who has SCD, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle”. The sickle cells die early, which causes a constant shortage of red blood cells. Also, when they travel through small blood vessels, they get stuck and clog the blood flow. This can cause pain and other serious problems such infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. 

It is estimated that:

  • SCD affects approximately 100,000 Americans.
  • SCD occurs among about 1 out of every 365 Black or African-American births.
  • SCD occurs among about 1 out of every 16,300 Hispanic-American births.
  • About 1 in 13 Black or African-American babies is born with sickle cell trait (SCT).
