I take this time to thank you for your support of the Sickle Cell Association of the National Capital Area, Inc. and in serving the Sickle Cell community. Most importantly, I express my sincere gratitude to our Board of Directors, some who have served since our inception, without whom the hard and sometimes tedious glories would not be realized. The continuous, supportive, and collaborative efforts of all surely help us to blossom.
SCANCA, INC. reached many goals in our community. We have contributed through our financial assistance for our qualified high school graduates with $500.00 scholarships. In 2016 there were three scholarship recipients and in 2017 there were five scholarship recipients. This year we have two recipients. Assistance is also given in times of family hardship in evictions, bereavement, utilities and other urgent needs. We support research in Sickle Cell Disease by providing Educational workshops and inspirational programs. There is no doubt that with your support and encouragement SCANCA, INC. will continue to flourish with medical, social research and financial services to the Sickle Cell Community.
God bless each of you!
Iola Y. Williams
