Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario (SCAGO) is a membership based, patient support and advocacy organization. We put patients and families affected by Sickle Cell Disease first, by advocating on their behalf with government, schools and the healthcare community. We at SCAGO understand the challenges faced by people with sickle cell disease and their family members. This is why we have created various supportive programs such as Learning for Life Seminars, the Adult Peer Support Group and the Parents Support Network. We contribute to the educational advancement of students with SCD by providing scholarships and grants. Through our activities, we provide support (mental, emotional and physical) to patients and their caregivers.
We encourage you to join us, share your experiences and learn from others.
