About Us

A Grass Roots Organization

The Metropolitan Seattle Sickle Cell Task Force is a grass roots community based organization committed to helping people with sickle cell disease in our local community. The Task Force was established in 1994 as a private non-profit organization. We are professionals, families and individuals making a difference in the community. Through Sickle Cell Camp, community education and outreach we facilitate understanding of sickle cell disease. Please contact us if you would like to be involved with Metropolitan Seattle Sickle Cell Task Force.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide education and support to the community and to enhance the overall well-being of those afflicted with various forms of sickle cell disease and their families. We work to disseminate information and provide support to people with sickle cell disease, young and old.

Community Outreach

The Task Force works in partnership with schools, institutions, non-profit organizations, and health care providers to provide sickle cell testing and education about sickle cell disease and trait to the community.


We desire to support individuals and families who are affected by sickle cell disease or who have the sickle cell trait. We offer family nights for families and friends. We also provide support groups for teens and adults affected by sickle cell disease. We want to be advocates for individuals and families in any way possible to enhance their well being. Please contact us if you have particular questions, concerns, or needs.
