NEW VIRTUAL SUPPORT GROUP "TRANSFORMERS" MEET-UP
Project SPIRIT & SC Red
Every First Tuesday of the month 7:00-8:15 pm EST/6:00-7:15 pm CST
For anyone making a decisions about undertaking a curative therapy for sickle cell or who may have experienced either a failed or a successful curative therapy.
Individuals who are contemplating, or undergone a sickle cell disease (SCD) curative therapy, (either failed or successful), face unique challenges. As individuals transition to a “new life” of physical, financial, emotional, societal, psychological, and spiritual concerns, “new awakenings" - feelings of anxiety, anger, confusion, and self-doubt emerge as they struggle to let go of the familiarity and expectations of living with sickle cell disease to facing the future with feelings of vulnerability. Some individuals may face feelings of guilt and condemnation that may be placed upon them by others.
