Sickle Cell Foundation of Oklahoma

Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder that affects red blood cells. It's found primarily in those of African descent but has increasing numbers among Hispanics, Native Americans and Caucasians. There are several types of SCD, and a simple blood test can determine whether the trait has been inherited. 

Tickets to the State of the Mind Pageant can be purchased at Ralph's Menswear, 736 East 36th Street North, or by calling Kyamron Jefferson at 918-428-8373.
