Journey to a Cure for Sickle Cell Disease

Please join us for a very special, free event on Martha’s Vineyard to raise awareness around sickle cell disease. Hosted by Boston Medical Center and Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, the afternoon will highlight the pioneering work being done at Boston Medical Center to treat and someday cure sickle cell disease.

Date: Wednesday, August 12
Union Chapel (55 Narragansett Avenue, Edgartown, MA 02539)

The occasion will feature:

  • A short program;
  • A panel Q&A with sickle cell disease experts; and
  • A discussion and performance by six-time Grammy Award winner BeBe Winans.

Benjamin “BeBe” Winans, the six-time Grammy Award winner, is the seventh child and youngest male of the Detroit-based first family of gospel music. BeBe is best known as an inspirational, R&B and popular vocalist and songwriter who, along with his musical partner and sister CeCe Winans, is the first true Christian crossover artist to hit the mainstream.

At Journey to a Cure, BeBe will generously discuss his newly released book “Born for This: My Story in Music,” and grace the audience with a moving performance.
