By Alabama News Network

A Montgomery radio station and non-profit organization are teaming up to help local people suffering from a serious blood disease.

Sickle cell anemia is a potentially fatal sickness that affects millions of people all over the world, including right here in Central Alabama. On Sunday, the Montgomery Sickle Cell Foundation and radio station Hallelujiah 104.3 held the 25th annual sickle cell radiothon.

Last year, they raised more than $14,000 that will go to help people with the disease, and they hope to top that number this year.

The Sickle Cell Foundation also gave a scholarship to a local student suffering from the disease.

To contribute, you can call the Sickle Cell Foundation at (334) 286-9122.
