Did you know that almost 300,000 children are born every year with some form of sickle cell disease? Sickle Cell is a group of disorders that cause red blood cells to become misshapen and break down (Google reference). Sickle cell disease is a life-long illness. The severity of the disease varies widely from person to person, sometimes a person can even need certain organ transplants because of the disease. Sickle Cell Anemia can also cause crippling chronic pain.Tres Belle Weddings and Special Events, is encouraged that social media awareness has become an effective way to promote and support a variety of campaigns; and this September, we would like your support in bringing awareness to treatments, research and hope for a cure to sickle cell anemia.
Post a selfie on your Facebook and social media feeds, wearing bold lipstick colors in support of Sickle Cell Awareness.#BoldLipsforSickleCell
The ribbon color for Sickle Cell Awareness is Purple, so consider a Bold lipstick, like MAC’s Sheen Supreme Lipstick-“Quite The Thing!”
Additional Facts about our Campaign:
Team Lead-Makeup Artist of Tres Belle Weddings, Jasmine Dixon has a son named Isaiah who suffers daily with the affects of sickle cell anemia.
As Jasmine watches him grow into a wonderful and kind young man, his growth is slow and painful due to sickle cell anemia. Isaiah frequently suffers from pain that is so debilitating that he can barely walk at times from the pain and is constantly, medically treated. He recently had a “sickling crisis” and needed 3 blood transfusions in a week. Unfortunately, Isaiah’s sickle cell anemia is considered by most, to be one of the worst cases of the disease, but there’s always hope that with modern treatment, he’ll be able to lead a normal and healthy life.
On September 21st, Isaiah will turn 5 years old. He’s a bright young boy, who has a love for legos and his mother, Jasmine would love to provide him with a beautiful vacation at LegoWorld.
It would be a joy, if we could provide just a little support for Jasmine and Isaiah to go on a vacation that will take their minds off of his illness and for Isaiah, to just be a kid.
