SoCal Sickle Cell Adult Group Meetings

Sickle Cell Disease affects people of every racial and ethnic background. Unfortunately, many people are not aware that they have Sickle Cell Disease or Sickle Cell Trait. With that in mind, we hope to reach more people in the Southern California area with the meetings and open forums.

We invite persons diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease or those who are trait carriers, family members, medical staff, supporters, or those who simply want to learn more, to join us.

For more information about the Adult Sickle Cell Support Group, please contact Tiffany of the Cayenne Wellness Center and Children's Foundation at 818.377.5120 or email
