What Is Shades Day? 

Sickle cell disease is the most inherited blood disorder on the globe. Sickle cell retinopathy is a symptom of the  disease that causes dark spots in the vision of those who live with the disease. Shades Day is an opportunity to  bring awareness to sickle cell disease and its symptoms and to show support and encouragement for those who  live with the condition daily.

 Shades Day will take place on Friday,  September 29, 2017. You can show your  support for the sickle cell community by posting a picture with your  favorite shades on and tagging   friends so that they can do the same.

When you participate you get to show off your style, and encourage millions of people around the globe who live with sickle cell disease every day.
