Learning that your child has sickle cell disease can be devastating. The Sickle Cell Disease Program is devoted to helping you and your child live the best quality of life possible while managing the disease.

We offer safe, time-tested therapies such as the medication hydroxyurea to help your child avoid pain, hospitalizations, and damage to organs in the body. And we offer the latest treatment options like stem cell transplant that can provide a cure for sickle cell disease.

We work with you and your child to find the best treatments possible to avoid complications of sickle cell disease such as anemia or severe infections — and to offer your child the chance to enjoy just being a kid.
