WELCOME TO SCAGO
The Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario (SCAGO) started as Seed of Life Philanthropic Organization (SOLPO) in memory of a brave young man- Sunday Afolabi on June 14th, 2005.
It is a leading charitable patient organization providing evidence-based support to families with children, adolescents, and adults, with SCD across the four regions of the province. It supports clinical research, engages in psycho-social research, health promotion, patients and care providers’ education, community awareness, and development of best practices guidelines.
Since its establishment, SCAGO invests 100% of its resources in improving the quality of life of individuals and families affected by SCD. It engages in evidentiary advocacy on their behalf with the government, schools, and the healthcare system.
We rely on the generous support of our volunteers, donors, and partners in our shared mission to improve the lives of Ontarians living with SCD, and ultimately to find a cure for this devastating disease.
