The making of this foundation was one that is considered to be truly worthy for the public. It manages to bring millions of people together from different ethnicities to join in a positive fight to cater for those who have the disease and acknowledge the importance of what sickle cell means. Throughout the previous years since the making of S.C.A.F, I was able to witness smiles on the faces of children and their parents, especially at Christmas time for Toy Drives at churches or even Walk-A-Thons in parks or on the streets on regular days. This made people feel loved and happy to know that even though they may not be of the same family tree, there are people who are concerned about their health and well-being and are willing to help them and support them at the Sicklel Cell Awareness Foundation Inc.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being able to do more in depth research for both myself and my extended family; this way, we would be aware if the disease was hereditary to us or not. It would also make us more alert as to the possibilities of it being transferred genetically among us and to our children or even their children in the near future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing about it. It took its time to grow and develop into where it’s at today because of the hard sacrifices, love, support and great efforts of family and friends, who worked together to build this Sickle Cell Awareness Foundation Inc. for the benefit of those whom are living with the disease and don't know it and for those whom are aware of it and are now learning how to cope and care for it so that they may continue life as they were supposed to.

SCAF is doing great work in the community, raising awareness and providing much-needed resources. Ms. Merlene Sotillo and Mr. Molino Sotillo work so diligently to run the organization with love and expertise.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide them with more funding.

THIS ORGANIZATION IS BEAUITFUL, IT IS HELPING PEOPLE TO KNOW THE REAL CAUSE OF WHAT SICKEL CELL IS ALL ABOUT AND HELPING THOSE WHO HAVE THE DISESE TO COPE,

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I MAKE BANNERS AND TEE SHIRT'S TO SPREAD THE WORD OUT TO THE PUBLIC, AND SEE THE RESPONSE OF PEOPLE TRY TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SICKLE CELL. THE LEADERS ARE GREAT PEOPLE AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONE DAY WITH THERE FIGHT THEY FIND THE CURE TO THIS DESESE,

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I THINK THIS ORGANIZATION IS WONDERFUL AND IS DOING GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY, THE ONLY THING I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS MORE PEOPLE COMEING OUT TO SUPORT THE CAUSE.
