This walk/run will help to raise funds to send children suffering from Sickle Cell Anemia to Camp Cell-A-Bration, which is a special needs camp exclusively for children sufferingfrom this disease. Camp Cell-A-Bration will be held in August, and it sends almost 50 children from Texas to this week long camp with companionship, horseback riding, swimming, arts and crafts and a full medical staff. Expenses for Camp are $500 per child, yet our agency does not charge for children or their families as many of them are economically disadvantaged and on state assistance. Sickle Cell Disease is a genetic blood disorder that attacks the red blood cells, many of our children have suffered stroked, chronic blood transfusions, pain crisis, jaundice and organ damage which will continue throughout their life. There is no cure and life expectancy is only to 40 years. Please walk to make a difference in their lives today.
