If I can not afford the medications prescribed for my sickle cell anemia, are there any programs that can help?

Needymeds.com. This is a great site for help with medications. It lists the drugs, you click on the one you want and it takes you to a site to print out a form. Your doctor can help. There are qualifications but it is worth a try. Good luck.
Medications. Contact a county social worker who can help find different programs available to you.
