Andrew Cranston Medical Grant

On Wednesday May 24, 2017 Andrew Cranston stepped into glory!

Our hearts at the Falling Angels Sickle Cell Foundation were truly saddened. It was an honor to have Andrew as a part of our vision; the vision to provide help for those who are dealing with sickle cell disease every day. Andrew was a warrior and he fought the good fight!!! He believed in the power of God and he also believed that he was on a journey to use his voice, his gifts, and his talents to represent those who suffer with this dreaded illness. Andrew joined the Falling Angels Sickle Cell Foundation in February 2015. Andrew embraced the role of spokesperson for our foundation. He enjoyed speaking at different events and he did it well.  He worked so hard to make a difference and was willing to do whatever was asked of him for the mission of the foundation. He touched so many young people’s lives. We know that he is in God’s hands. We are comforted by that fact and that he is no longer in pain. We say to you Andrew, take your rest! We thank God that you came our way. Know this. The work will continue. We will touch lives one life at a time.

The Andrew Cranston Scholarship provides financial assistance for families and individuals affected by Sickle Cell Disease. We offer funds for medication, transportation, insurance assistance, and hospital admission and discharge. Unfortunately, medical insurance for sickle cell patients is very difficult to acquire. Grants will be given up to $1,000 for various services. We are the advocates for sickle cell patients. This was Andrew’s belief and dream to use is voice to assist others with Sickle Cell.
