On Wednesday, March 19th, I re-introduced my Private Members' Bill, Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Care Ontario Act. If passed, this bill would establish a provincial body called Sickle Cell & Thalassemia Care Ontario, and proclaim June 19th to be Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Awareness Day in Ontario.
Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Care Ontario would improve the co-ordination of healthcare resources, promote awarenss and education, and advocate on behalf of individuals who have sickle cell and thalassemia disorders.
Proclaiming June 19th as Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Awareness Day in Ontario would increase awareness of these blood disorders and deidcate a day to support individuals who have sickle cell and thalassemia.
