Youth Against Sickle Cell

Wednesdays 9PM

Plaza Room Middle  

Youth Against Sickle Cell's main focus is to raise the awareness of Sickle Cell Anemia and raise money towards research in hopes of finding a cure. Our mission is to help ease the burdens of the affected young people and their families with this disease. Sickle Cell Anemia is a disease that affects everyone but its highest occurrences are in the African-American community. 1 in about every 400 African-Americans has Sickle Cell, a disease which currently has no cure. Youth Against Sickle Cell will host various fundraisers in order to donate this money towards finding a cure, and to those families who need it most. YASC will one day soon tutor local children who are trapped in the hospital for weeks at a time due to Sickle Cell Crises, as well as lecture and educate the community about how this disease ravages and shortens the lives of affected children. Please e-mail  AFreem7@pride.hofstra.edu  for more information.
