Marcus McKinley

I am Marcus McKinley, a 34 year old male entrepreneaur living with, advocating, and conquering sickle cell disease. I am originally from a small Mississippi Delta city of about 40,000 inhabitants named Greenville.  Greenville is where I was diagnosed with sickle cell type SS at the age of two.  This was my first crisis that required hospitilization.  I have endured many, many hospitilizations, blood transfusions, and medical procedures due to sickle cell.  I currently reside in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma where I own a mobile auto detailing and a towing business.  I also hold various positions within community based organizations dedicated to sickle cell.   I am a passionate advocate for those living with and affected by sickle cell. My life is and always will be committed to advocating and finding advanced treatment and a possible cure for this genetic blood disorder. I love traveling around the country to lend my voice and a helping hand to those living with and/or affected by sickle cell disease.  I am a family man and a man full of integrity and leadership.
