Sickle Cell Gene Therapy Fund

£80 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 11 months
The Pain to Power Campaign is directly aimed at raising awareness of sickle cell disease, along with fundraising for the pioneering gene therapy research proven to cure sickle cell disease.

Sickle cell, the world’s most common blood disorder, is a genetic disease that affects people of tropical descent. Those that suffer from sickle cell have red blood cells that are unusually shaped, almost like ‘sickles’ or like crescent moons, due to haemoglobin abnormalities. Sufferers of sickle cell often live a life of pain, regular hospital visits and in a number of cases – reduced life expectancy.

In recent times, ground-breaking treatments have been identified that completely cure sufferers of Sickle Cell and this is what has inspired the Pain to Power Campaign. In March this year, there were reports of a teenager has experienced complete remission and now has normal red blood cells 15 months after completing treatment.

Our goal is for as many people to live a life pain-free from the clutches of sickle cell and we hope to raise funds on this campaign to make that goal a reality.
