Join us for the 5th Annual ” 5K Walk, Run or Jog Together for a Cure” and Health Expo. This year, our theme is “Knocking Down Walls”. This event is a fundraiser to help bring awareness to Sickle Cell Disease. The Health Expo will have over 15 Community Agencies to help families with children with Special Needs!

Welcome!

Supporters of Families with Sickle Cell Disease (Supporters’), Inc., is a comprehensive community-based organization which services individuals and families living with sickle cell and thalassemia disease and trait in Oklahoma. Supporter’s is the center of contact and community service provision for the estimated 40,000 Oklahomans with sickle cell trait and approximate 1,500 Oklahoma families living with sickle cell and thalassemia disease in Oklahoma.

Supporters’ believe self-care management, education, research and development, and economic self-sufficiency is an approach which increases empowerment, advocacy, family self-efficacy and support. Our aspiration is to educate Oklahoma communities, break the sickle cell silence, and increase self esteem; as we improve the overall quality of life for children, adults, and families living with sickle cell thalassemia disease trait in Oklahoma.

Sickle Cell Camp

July 31 – August 4, 2019
Frontier Cove (formerly known as Dry Gulch USA)

Camp Cavett is by far our biggest camp, weighing in with 180 campers and 180 volunteers!
Every year, a variety of patients converge at Frontier Cove (formerly known as Dry Gulch USA) to reclaim their lives. This camp is a necessity when feeling disconnected and alone with medical problems. We breakdown walls and bring normalcy back to lives through many activities.
