The Sickle Cell Disease Foundation of California (SCDFC) is a non-profit organization founded in 1957. SCDFC provides education, as well as life-enhancing programs and services, to individuals with sickle cell disease. This is a rare inherited blood disorder in which the red blood cells, normally disc-shaped, become crescent-shaped. As a result, they function abnormally and cause small blood clots. These clots give rise to recurrent painful episodes called "sickle cell pain crises." SCDFC addresses the needs of individuals with sickle cell disease and their families by emphasizing both educational and support services that meet both physical and emotional needs.
