I am wondering if there is a way to move a post to another area for more views/action. I submitted a post to the Health forum/Chronic Diseases and Conditions in regards to gaining signatures for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. The petition is intended to go to the White House. Petition needs 100,000 signatures by October 22. I just want to make sure that as many DU members as possible see the thread in hopes that they can help with providing signatures and perhaps passing the message along to their friends.
The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America has launched a petition. In part, "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," according to SCDAA.
Please take time to sign this petition. I am affected by sickle trait and I have close friends who have sickle cell disease. It is devastating. More funding for research is desperately needed in order to get better treatment and hopefully a cure. The link contains more information, as well as a links to sign the petition. Thank you.
