AflacSickleCellSense

Get in the know with #AflacSickleCellSense

Sickle cell disease is the most common inherited blood disorder
in the U.S. and disproportionately affects African Americans.
Throughout National Sickle Cell Awareness Month this September,
we're raising awareness about this devastating illness as part of our #AflacSickleCellSense social campaign and ongoing mission to
advance understanding and support of a community in need.

Shea Guillory

Superhero Spotlight: Shea Guillory

When Shea learned her son, Sawyer, had sickle cell disease, she was devastated. Little did she know Sawyer's twin brother, Saxton, would be his bone-marrow transplant donor, ultimately healing him of the disease. Shea shares her family's story facing sickle cell and how My Special Aflac Duck became a part of their journey.
