Forging Hope out of Uncertainty : A First Voice

Join us for a compelling and inspirational evening with Biba Tinga, a first voice from the Black community.  Biba will share her long and difficult road to save her son’s life, beginning as a teen mother of a child born with sickle cell disease (SCD) in Niger, West Africa. She and her family then immigrated to Canada, adapting to a new life, which led her to taking on the advocacy for thousands of people living with this genetic disease in this country. This is the story of a mom, an immigrant and an advocate. You will be inspired by Biba’s story.

 
ABOUT THE FIRST VOICE:
 
Biba Tinga is the President and Executive Director of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of Canada, a national organization advocating for comprehensive health care for those with sickle cell disease (SCD).  She brings a wealth of experience and longstanding dedication to improving conditions for people with sickle cell disease.
