Welcome to SCYSS

Sickle Cell & Young Stroke Survivors (SCYSS) is a registered charity, that holistically supports children, young people and their families affected by sickle cell anaemia and childhood stroke. It started as a support group in June 2005 by a parent who had to manouvre the lonely Stroke maze when her 6 year old had a stroke as a result of Sickle Cell Anaemia. As the need grew, in September 2007, it became a registered charity.

Many people do not know that Sickle Cell can cause a stroke in children as young as 2 and up to the age of 16 years old. The statistics are alarming, yet ignorance is still bliss.

It’s not because I don’t want to go out but because of my condition, I have not been too keen about socialising with people.”
