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.
