The White House Petition is Here!

SCDAA Launches White House Petition for support of Reauthorization of Treatment Act

The White House Petition to bring national attention to the Sickle Cell Treatment Act – H.R. Bill 5124 is up and it’s time for us all to roll up our sleeves and get to work in obtaining signatures. 

SCDAA and the SCD Community is requesting that the President of the United States acknowledge and declare of Sickle Cell Disease as a national health priority; support legislative Bill - H.R. 5124 and return funding for SCD programs in the President’s budget.

The petition was created on Monday- September 22nd with the official campaign launch today - September 24th !

The majority of federal dollars for SCD programs as we know it today is within the Treatment Act which expired in 2009.  Without reauthorization these programs have already been significantly reduced and are now at jeopardy of being eliminated.  Bill passage is essential.

A successful petition will not raise national awareness about the importance of sickle cell disease but also places SCD in a unique position to be supported in key branches of government to include Administration and Congress.

The White House petition one phase of a three part plan to insure success of the bill.  SCDAA will also be launching a robust letter writing campaign to Congressional leaders beginning in October.  In addition the organization is working around the clock to secure Senate introduction and insure appropriations for the bill.

 

Let’s Get Started!

Please start getting signatures right away!  According to the White House instructions we have to:

  1. Obtain 150 signatures to get this petition publicly searchable and then;
  2. Secure an additional 99,850 signatures (a total of 100,000 signatures) 

All within only 30 Days!

We believe that this will be a cinch!  As a matter of fact we are challenging the SCD Community and friends to let’s raise the bar and get even more signatures.  Let’s make a statement to President Obama and his Administration that Sickle Cell Disease is Real and deserves to be a priority!

Let’s All Unite and Make this Happen!   Let’s Make Our Voice Heard for All Patients, Families, Providers and Communities Affected!
