Sickle Cell Disease

Whether you’re a patient, a caregiver, a friend, a family member or a provider, sickle cell advocacy & support is important.

Support to help manage sickle cell disease

In the United States, sickle cell disease is the most common inherited blood disorder, affecting approximately 100,000 people. While sickle cell disease impacts all racial and ethnic groups, a higher proportion of African Americans and Hispanics are diagnosed with the condition than Whites in the United States. Across the life span, patients with sickle cell disease experience frequent and unpredictable pain episodes, numerous hospitalizations, and other serious health problems such as infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. Multiple medical advancements and health care interventions have transformed a once fatal childhood disease into a chronic condition.

Moore Healthcare Group is committed to helping all affected by SCD—including patients with sickle cell disease, their families & caretakers—achieve their highest level of health, and working towards bridging the gap in disparities in health care quality and access. We look forward to improving the quality of care and the quality of life for patients with sickle cell disease.
