Michael Pratt Jr., SCFSN Board Member
Michael is our board member who knows first hand what it takes to be a parent of children with Sickle Cell. Michael and his wife have 3 boys and 2 of them have Sickle Cell disease SS. Michael and his wife are key in advising the board on how to plan out services for now and future endeavors of the SCFSN. They are the first on board in every project SCFSN takes on. Their support has kept SCFSN on track and growing.
Louisetta is a pioneer at the core of SCFSN holding the hats of Executive Director, mom of a SC warrior, author, business coach. She created SCFSN out of the realization that there were no direct support services available to suppport families of children with Sickle Cell Disease. So literally sitting in the hospital by her daughter bedside she began to create SCFSN to provide support to Sickle Cell families like hers. Louisetta resides in South Elgin, IL with her daughters.
