Living with Sickle Cell RVA is a nonprofit started by Dionne T. Bobo, who has two children living with the disease that largely affects those of African, South Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean ancestry.
Organizers hope to raise awareness of the disease and the resources available for school workers, public health centers and communities to support and advocate for children and youths affected by sickle cell disease.
