For more than half-a-century, an organization for African-American women has quietly served those less fortunate in cities across the globe. Recently, the women of The Links, Incorporated partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to address sickle cell disease.
Children diagnosed with sickle cell anemia face unique health challenges. To help these children live long and crisis-free lives, The Links Foundation, Incorporated presented its 2018 Legacy Grant to St. Jude.
The million-dollar gift will help the hospital continue working with patients diagnosed with the inherited blood disease.
St. Jude’s founder, Danny Thomas, envisioned a place where children would get the care they needed to survive life-threatening diseases. Research and treatment of sickle cell disease began when the hospital opened in 1962.
