The Warrior Team (WT) is a national network of patients, families, well wishers, and all people affected by SCD; looking to advocate, educate and help people living with or who are affected by sickle cell disease. We are also aware that there is immeasurable strength in numbers that SCD related organisation are providing and if an SCD related organisation so wills they may register with us as a Warrior Team that works with us thereby incorporating some of our projects into theirs particularly the Blood Run Marathon and Walk With a Warrior. Collectively, our goal is to ensure that those affected by sickle cell disease know that they are not alone and that we mobilize resources towards serving the SCD community better.
With the help from our national based Warrior Teams (both self established and through aligned organizations), we are creating a strong network that includes caregivers, clinicians, stakeholders and experts. The Global Initiative for Sickle Cell Anemia (GISA) seeks to increase its network to include more individuals that have the energy and drive to recruit others and increase advocacy and awareness within the sickle cell community!
