From Nigeria to India to cure Sickle Cell Disease

P.A. is a 7 year-old boy from Nigeria cured from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) with a bone marrow transplant from his elder sister almost a year ago. The family contacted Cure2Children in July 2016, free compatibility testing was arranged by shipping the kits to Nigeria. After knowing that the sister was matched, the family decided to come to our partner BMT center in Bangalore-India, established in collaboration with Sankalp India Foundation.
