Since 2008, World Sickle Cell Awareness Day has been held annually, in order to help increase public knowledge and raise awareness of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). The date was chosen to commemorate the day on which a resolution was officially adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations, recognizing SCD as a public health concern. Sickle cell disease is an inherited red blood cell disorder. SCD affects millions of people around the world, including both adults and children.

The sickle cell clinic, previously located at LSU, is now a part of the Feist Weiller Cancer Center. Our clinic treats many patients with sickle cell disease from central and north Louisiana as well as the northeast Texas area. The clinic has been established since early 1990 and continues to grow.

Dr. Richard Mansour is the medical director for the Adult Sickle Cell Service and Dr. Majed Jeroudi is the medical director for the Pediatric Sickle Cell Service. Feist Weiller Cancer Center provides compassionate and comprehensive care to improve the quality of life for persons diagnosed with sickle cell disease.

Sickle Cell Group Featured in National Magazine

Feist-Weiller Cancer Center would like to congratulate Ron Nierman, LPC, and the Sickle Cell Disease support group for being featured in The Voice, a quarterly magazine published by the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. 

The article features the support group members, along with their popular project, The Healing Power of Music.  The project was started with the help of Alligator Records and Mavis Staples, a recording artist whose 2004 album "Have a Little Faith" became an inspiration to group members.  

Music of other genres has been added, and group members have offered their own musical talents at meetings and luncheons!  The healing power of music helps patients relax during treatments and at home.  Group members are given CDs when they attend support group meetings. 

The Sickle Cell Support Group meets every Monday at noon at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center's Bakowski Center for Learning in the first floor lobby.  If you or someone you know may be interested in the support groups at FWCC, please contact Ron Nierman by phone at (318) 470-6180 or by email; Jackie Walton by phone (318) 813-1405 or email; or Jo Ann Stewart by phone at (318) 813-1409 or by email.
