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.
