Group Name: Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario

Description: Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario also known as SCAGO. It started on June 14th, 2005 as Seed of Life Philanthropic Organization in memory of a brave young man- Sunday Afolabi. It has significantly contributed to the health and well-being of many Canadians tirelessly educating the community about Sickle Cell Anemia and its subsequent poverty; focusing more on how the incidences of these ailments could be reduced within the At- Risk communities. Sickle Cell Anemia is a severe genetic blood disorder that affects the red blood cells.

The SCAGO Adult Peer Support Group is a continuous entry group (i.e., an open group). A continuous entry group may run for a specific number of months or be ongoing. Membership fluctuates as participants may join or leave the group at any time. Each session may feature a predetermined topic for discussion or sessions may be left open to address the individual needs of participants. Discussions flow easily and giving and receiving support is equally shared at each meeting; thus gaining insights and making suggestions more spontaneous. The peer support group works as a unit.
