Sickle Cell is a blood disorder that causes a severe amount of pain. These painful episodes are referred to as sickle cell crisis. They are treated with strong painkillers such as morphine to control the pain. A bone marrow transplant is the only cure but this is only possible for a very small percentage who have a suitable donor. Sickle Cell isn't contagious and it can only be inherited if both parents have passed on the gene.
If you have Sickle Cell then this is something that first responders need to be aware of. Carrying a Sickle Cell Medical ID Card can help pass this information on if you are unable to.
They are credit card sized so will fit easily into a purse or wallet, alternatively you can have them on display via a lanyard or card clip. They are personalised with the holders name shown on the front and two emergency contacts on the back of the card.
We design all of the ID cards ourselves so if you want any of the wording changed then that's not an issue. You can either leave a note in the box when you purchase or alternatively, pop a message over via the contact tab and lets work out a new card together. Our tag line is Every Card Imaginable for a reason!
