Fundraising Pages at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation website are a fun and easy way to make meaningful donations and encourage others to support the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Millions of people worldwide — including more than 100,000 in the United States – are affected by sickle cell disease and suffer from pain and an increased risk of infection. The disease affects 1 in 500 African Americans and 1 in 1,000 to 1,400 Hispanic Americans.
The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at CHOP, one of the largest pediatric centers in the world, strives to reduce the devastating effects of sickle cell disease. The Center team has pioneered research in treatment of children with sickle cell, developing a stem-cell transplant procedure that gives real hope for a “universal cure,” along with other groundbreaking research into treatments and cures including gene therapy, DNA protein therapy, and in utero stem cell transplantation.
You can search the Fundraising Pages directory for a particular person, browse the listings, or even design your own page to begin raising money for sickle cell disease.
It's simple to customize a page with your own words using the tools on the site. When your page is ready, you can send an e-mail or share your page on Facebook and Twitter with friends and family to spread the word about The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and raise vital funds that support the compassionate care and innovative research that saves the lives of children.
