The William E. Proudford Sickle Cell Fund, Inc. (the WEPSCF) was founded in 2005 by the Proudford family in honor of their father who passed away following a life-long battle with sickle cell disease. During their father’s battle with sickle cell, the Proudford family encountered many challenges as they sought to understand sickle cell disease and find adequate treatment for their father. The WEPSCF was founded to combat these challenges through their mission to support sickle cell awareness, education, state-of-the-art treatment and research, and to bring hope to persons and families affected by sickle cell.
