Last night, we hosted a really important survivor panel at our office in Cambridge, Massachusetts during our after-school mentorship program, STRIVE, for high school teenagers living with sickle cell disease.
A group of young adults living with sickle cell disease shared their life experiences and answered every question from our teenage participants. Our STRIVE participants got life-changing advice and learned so much about different areas of life, including:
- school & building their resume
- their future career
- relationships and disclosure
- self-care tips & self advocacy
Thank you to this amazing group of young adults for providing life-changing information for our young participants living with sickle cell disease! Your voice is so important and was heard last night!
