Sickle cell patients don't get enough love. So this season, we're on a mission to support sickle cell patients all around the world. And sickle cells are shaped like a C…so we're calling the mission Hold Up C.

9,000 People Hold Up C.

To show support for Meziah, and for every other sickle cell patient worldwide, the entire crowd at Cameron Indoor Stadium held up C.
