Benefitting a World-class Sickle Cell Program

Children with sickle cell disease can experience excruciating pain and repeated visits to the Emergency Department, and have a high risk of stroke and an average life expectancy of only 50 years. The Daisy Days campaign benefits sickle cell research and patient care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where a large and comprehensive program offers all the specialty services these patients need. Our researchers are on the cusp of a history-making breakthrough: a revolutionary cure for people living with the disease — and for those diagnosed while still in the womb. With your help, we can transform lives.
