“Embracing Sickle Cell Communities with a Touch of Hope”

We do whatever it takes to make sure people living with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) don’t just survive, but thrive. We believe that each person with SCD should be able to make their mark on our world and help build a better future.

We are a non-profit team!

About Us

Genèsic Nonprofit Organization, Incorporated was founded by Alisha Lewis, Andréa (Dréa) Lewis, and Vallerie Lewis on March 28, 2018.

Alisha Lewis, Founder & CEO, was born in Albany, Georgia. She is a graduate of Westover High School. She continued her academic pursuits and graduated from Darton College (now Albany State University) with an associate’s degree in Biomedical Technology. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Georgia State University and a master’s in Kinesiology from the University of Georgia. Now, she is pursuing to become a medical doctor.

While at the University of Georgia, Alisha worked at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia as a Rehabilitation Aide with a specialty in Wound Care and Lymphedema. She also worked at Atlanta Physical Therapy where she worked with professional athletes. Additionally, she worked with teens who suffer from diabetes and who were preparing to become professional cyclists with aspirations being on an Olympic team.

Alisha and her family recently started Genèsic Nonprofit Organization, Incorporated in Albany, Georgia. The non-profit was inspired by family members who suffer from Sickle Cell Disease. Genèsic focuses on bringing awareness to Sickle Cell Disease as well as raising funds to build clinics.
