Possible Cure for Sickle Cell Found in Paris

Hematologists, sickle cell patients, and families with loved ones living with sickle cell disorders are hoping for a universal cure for sickle cell patients. In 1982, doctors at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital were the first to cure the genetic blood disorder using a bone marrow transplant. In fact, in 2014, I had the privilege of meeting Kimberlin, the first person cured of sickle cell. The experience made me hopeful that one day I’ll also see my daughter receive a cure as well.
