Services We Provide

We provide a plethora of services for the public and families affected with Sickle Cell Disease and Sickle Cell Trait.

How We Can Help

  • Certified Hemoglobinopathy Education:  we provide families and persons affected with sickle cell disease specific education about their illness. This detailed education includes information about medications, treatments, prevention and other education.
  • Newborn Screening Notification:  we partner with the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide vital information to parents of newborns. If a newborn tests positive for Sickle Cell Trait our agency will notify and educate the parents about this new found diagnosis.
  • Camp Cell-A-Bration:  we provide a specialized week-long camp for children with sickle cell disease. This camp is free of charge for these special children and is held every August.
  • Sickle Cell Testing:  we are so excited that we are offering Sickle Cell Testing. If you, a relative or a friend would like to receive Sickle Cell testing please contact our Headquarters office at 512-458-9767.
  • Support and Case Managementwe offer many resources for our families with sickle cell disease. If you or your loved one has sickle cell disease contact our agency to see how we can be of assistance.
  • Supporting Ourselves Support Group Meetings:  we offer telephone support group meets for families affected by sickle cell disease. We understand that at times it is difficult to come together and offer support. We have decided to offer telephone conference support group meetings so if you are in the hospital, out of town, cannot drive, or if you want to remain anonymous we can still come together and support ourselves. Let's learn, love and support each other! Please click here to register and learn more.
  • Outreach and Education:  we offer education to the at-risk population and we educate our community about sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait.
  • Research and Treatments:  we offer research and awareness education to further educate the community about sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait upcoming research. The more research and awareness that is provided to families and the community at large, the closer we are in finding a cure for sickle cell disease.  Please make sure you join our mailing list to receive up to date research.
