Specialists in the Sickle Cell Disease Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center provide diagnosis, treatment and long-term health management for children and young adults with all types of sickle cell disease.

Located in Boston, MA, we are an international leader in improving treatment and quality of life for children affected by sickle cell diseases, including:

-Sickle cell anemia (HbSS)
-Sickle cell with hemoglobin C disease (HbSC)
-Hemoglobin S-beta-thalassemia
-Other, less common compound forms, including HbSD, HbSO and HbSE

At Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s, all patients with sickle cell disease and other serious blood disorders are assigned a social worker to help manage the challenges of ongoing treatments that are often required. Our social workers will provide emotional, psychological and logistical support to patients and families from diagnosis to adulthood.
