"Ignite an Era of Renewed Awareness to 

Sickle Cell Disease"

Who Are We?

Sickle Cell Anemia Awareness of San Francisco (SCAASF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that came into existence in 2014 after our founder's son Kareem M. Jones passed away in 2013 from complications with sickle cell disease. 

Our Mission

Broaden public awareness about sickle cell disease

Advocate for clients and families for access to quality compassionate healthcare

Educate to empower

Establish a comprehensive Sickle Cell Disease Care & Resource center in San Francisco  for people living with sickle cell disease to improve care and relations.


Ask Congress to Fund Sickle Cell Research & Awareness

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) is leading Congressional efforts to increase awareness and funding for sickle cell, which disproportionally impacts Black and Latino communities. Take action and join UCSF and SCAASF in asking Congress to support sickle cell research and help ensure access to testing and lifesaving information.
