Sickle cell disease & stem cell transplant
For anyone with sickle cell disease, a stem cell transplant may now give hope of a cure.
If you have been told that a stem cell transplant may be a treatment option for you, you might have lots of questions. There is lots to think about and consider.
Your medical team will know your unique situation best, but we also have plenty of information and support that you can use to help make the best decisions for your own health and future. All our info was developed with people with sickle cell disease and healthcare professionals.
Our webpage is here: www.anthonynolan.org/sicklecell
It includes short videos by Elizabeth, Adewale and Iggie, who tell us what stem cell transplant was like for them.
Our leaflet, which lists the risks and benefits of stem cell transplant for sickle cell patients, can be viewed here:
