Sickle Cell Awareness Day Bowl-a-Thon

Published on: 06/26/2015

On Friday June 19, the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Sickle Cell Comprehensive Care Center celebrated World Sickle Cell Awareness Day with bowling at Spiltzville Luxury Lanes. It was a fun-filled family event!


Sickle cell disease is a condition where abnormally shaped red blood cells get trapped in small blood vessels, therefore blocking the blood and oxygen flow to the organs. SCD affects about 90- 100,000 people in the U.S. alone which is why awareness is so important.
