Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Sickle cell, the world’s most common blood disorder, is a genetic disease that affects people of tropical descent. Those that suffer from sickle cell have red blood cells that are unusually shaped, almost like ‘sickles’ or like crescent moons, due to haemoglobin abnormalities. Sufferers of sickle cell often live a life of pain, regular hospital visits and in a number of cases – reduced life expectancy.
In recent times, ground-breaking treatments have been identified that completely cure sufferers of Sickle Cell and this is what has inspired the Pain to Power Campaign. In March this year, there were reports of a teenager has experienced complete remission and now has normal red blood cells 15 months after completing treatment.
Our goal is for as many people to live a life pain-free from the clutches of sickle cell and we hope to raise funds on this campaign to make that goal a reality.
