Sickle Cell Foundation of Minnesota (SCFMN) was founded in 2015 and consists of passionate patients, caregivers, sickle cell trait carriers, medical providers, advocates, and other individuals and stakeholders who are concerned with the outcomes of our community.
Our mission: To improve the quality of life for individuals and communities affected by sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait. Our goal is to provide community programs and resources that meet the needs of individuals and medical providers.
Our Vision & Values: By connecting individuals and families living with sickle cell to one another, to competent and compassionate medical providers and services that provide increased access to resources that address barriers to care, we believe we can and will help to improve health outcomes that also improve and enhance quality of life. Our commitment to the sickle cell community is deeply rooted in our belief that we are stronger together than as one. We value our individual and community health, equitable access to competent and compassionate care and community-centered solutions. The foundational pillars of our work create the building blocks necessary to increase health literacy, build support networks, and empower individuals to live at their full capacity.
