Join us for Karaoke 4 A Kause This Tuesday November 7th

This Tuesday, November 7, 2017, I partnered with Stacia D. Wright founder of Karaoke 4 a Kause DC to help raise funds for charities helping children who are living with sickle cell disease. The night is going to be full of fun and information at the new restaurant Ben’s Upstairs in Washington, DC. 

Karaoke 4 A Kause

A portion of the proceeds of Karaoke 4 a Kause’s kickoff event will go towards: St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and My Three Sicklers Sickle Cell Foundation (MTSSCF). These two charities are near and dear to my heart because they both help children living with Sickle Cell Disease.

St Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Did you know that aside from focusing on childhood cancer St. Jude also helps families with children who suffer from rare diseases like sickle cell disease. In fact,

St. Jude has one of the largest pediatric sickle cell programs in the country. [They] treat children with sickle cell disease from birth through age 18.

A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to meet the first patient in the world cured from sickle cell disease. In 1983, Kimberlin Wilson George’s doctors at St. Jude were trying to help stop leukemia from spreading throughout her body. Inadvertently, the bone marrow treatment she underwent for leukemia also cured her from having sickle cell disease.  The research at St. Jude is shared worldwide to help numerous patients suffering from various disorders around the world.

The second charity we will highlight that night will also help families affected by sickle cell disorders. My Three Sicklers is a foundation for children with living with sickle cell disorders.  The foundation is committed to providing support in 3 main ways:

  1. MTSSCF sponsors children to attend summer camps specially designed for their needs. 
  2. Meal vouchers are given to families who attend appointments at the GA sickle cell treatment center.
  3. Birthday gifts to children living with sickle cell, because every birthday reached is a huge milestone.
