Subject: STRIVE: Sickle Cell Disease mentorship program

Description:
Interested in helping provide support and a community to adolescents with
Sickle Cell Disease? SCD affects about 100,000 Americans, and 1 in 365
African Americans, shortens life expectancy significantly, and causes many
health complications and pain crises. STRIVE is a volunteer organization in
which teens living with SCD are paired with college students for
individualized support and guidance through weekly phone calls and monthly
Saturday group sessions and hospital visits. Most Next Step youth living with
sickle cell disease participate for the duration of their high school career,
building meaningful and long-lasting relationships with their mentors. To
learn more about STRIVE or to sign up, email Jarrod Sheehan at
