A Word from the President
Mr. Parnel V. Abraham
Thank you for visiting the Support Group website. We offer a
new approach and insight to wellness. In the hopes you will
receive and apply the information offered, and make a proactive
effort in engaging with us, in our quest to improve the quality of
life of people afflicted with Sickle Cell Disease.
Our history is filled with great legacy and honor. Our future is on
the course for greater accomplishments and greater challenges,
but it’s up to us and you to make a positive difference in
humanity. I leave you with the words of Robert Schuller
"See The Invisible!
Believe The Incredible!
Attempt The Impossible!"
A Word from the Vice President
Mrs. Vivian Whitfield-Mack
As a Sickle Cell C Harlem patient, I encourage you to join our
efforts. I have received growth in various areas of my life from
my involvement with the Support Group. The most important
benefit I received is education on the pros and cons of
medication not often mentioned by physicians and health care
providers. Truly no one better understands than those living
with this chronic disease.
A Word from one of our Medical Advisors
Dr. Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND
"Sickle Cell Anemia has been cured and eliminated in animals by
the Veterinarian Industry with nutritional supplement programs
some 65 years ago and we are now bringing this knowledge to
the Black Communities in America and in the world for the
benefit of all."
A Word from The Support Group Members
The Word of God says "My people are destroyed for lack of
knowledge..." (Hosea 4:6) and "Wisdom is the principal thing;
therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting, get
understanding." (Proverbs 4:7).
We, the members of the Sickle Cell Foundation Support Group,
Inc., encourage you to join our efforts. In our meetings, we
learn about many things, share experiences, talk it out, and do
what we can to help one another. We encourage others to use
their common sense and God-given abilities to ask questions,
seek understanding and not fear. If there is anything you are
not quite clear on concerning your health, just don't understand
the doctor's comments or unsure of certain issues, we will do
our best to help you understand, get answers and we will seek
referrals and resources for you to follow-up with. We are
encouraged to Live Well, Despite of Sickle Cell.
A Word from our Advisors
Mr. Phillip J. Oliver and Ms. Linda Gay
"We can all make a difference by building strong partnerships
with those affected by Sickle Cell Disease, their families,
support groups, schools, organizations, and health care
providers." "Trust, communication, understanding, patience
and faith are vital to the members of The Sickle Cell
Foundation Support Group, Inc."
