The Sickle Cell Association in St. Louis has been serving the local community since 2011. Sickle Cell Anemia was discovered in 1904, and while we’ve made strides in treating the disease, the opportunity for a cure is not widely available.
It is our mission to support the sickle cell community while working to eliminate the disease through collaborations on research, education and resources.
We’re very excited to announce the debut of the new Sickle Cell Association St. Louis website. You can learn more about the organization on the ABOUT page. We invite you to take a look around the website and learn how you can GET CONNECTED.
FACE SICKLE CELL STL is on Saturday, April 23, at Harris Stowe State University. The 5th Annual SICKLE CELL STROLL is on Saturday, September 10, on the campus of Washington University School of Medicine. Sickle Cell Stroll 2016 is a walk to raise awareness of sickle cell disease. It is an event designed to celebrate the lives of those with sickle cell disease and to educate the community about the disease. Whether you have sickle cell, know someone who does or would like to show your support, come stroll with us!

I believe it is important to have a support system to help through the tough timesituation. I’ve been surviving with sickle cell for 48yrs. If anyone out there ever needs to talk to someone who understands what you may be going through I’m always willing to listen. 314-839-7737
let’s avoid overdosing of sickle anemia patients while managing pain.
What’s an example of high dosing?
Patients in chronic sickle cell pain will often be on long-acting opioids. They will be on 100 mg of methadone daily divided into three doses or on 80 mg of OxyContin a day, divided among two or three doses. They may also be on a short-acting medication such as morphine in doses like 60 mg every two to three hours. Those are just huge doses.
