SUPPORT A
WORTHY CAUSE

EVERY DOLLAR MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE


Your gift, no matter how large or small, makes all the difference to a patient needing support. Patients like Madalynn, 22 years old from Woodsboro, TX who needed a bone marrow transplant because of a rare genetic disease called GATA 2. Through your support we were able to provide her and her grandmother with an apartment to stay in during the 100 days she needed to stay close to the NIH after the transplant.

BE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER
YOUR GIFT – IN ANY AMOUNT – IS PRICELESS

When you make a donation to support our cause, you join hundreds of generous people who are giving to others at a time when they are in the most need, when they should be focused on healing and not how to pay the next bill.
The dollars we receive are used for our programs on transportation, lodging, medical expenses and patient outings.

Friends 2019

17-year-old Dixon

 

Friends of Patient at the NIH provided support to 17-year-old Dixon and his family last year when he came to the NIH seeking a stem cell transplant for Sickle Cell Disease.

Dr. John Tisdale, his physician, who has pioneered this experimental treatment, says it is safe to say Dixon is cured! What great words for Dixon’s family to hear!

Initially, Dixon’s father, Leonard, took him and his older sister, Flavia, to India from their native country of Uganda. Both children had Sickle Cell Disease.

The family could only afford treatment for one child at a time, so Flavia told her little brother, “You go first.” Unfortunately, Flavia died waiting for medicine.

When Dixon’s father heard about this treatment in the United States, he resolved to do everything possible to save Dixon’s life. Hear Dixon’s story in his own words, meet his father and the physician/researcher, Dr. John Tisdale.

Please help us help provide emergency financial support to many more NIH patients in clinical trials, like Dixon.
