A message from Reverse Psychology London:

“As a mother I relate first hand to the recent, tragic events in the news. Avoidance of future heartbreak drives me, on behalf of my own son, close family & other afflicted warriors.  

The pain & levels of endurance needs to be aided & with your help now it can be, with immediate effect.

We reach out to you now, during desperate times to be part of something, successful & active, to support the Sickle Cell Society in continuing its work after 40+ years of service.

The ‘Rise Up’ event this July signifies much to be forward thinking about, coming at this significant time.

The Society represents many sickle cell warriors and REALLY needs your help, now & more than ever. Spare a moment & please see links for exclusive access, limited ticket sales for this intimate experience of fabulous entertainment & more info”
