Today me and my family entered a study conducted at NIH on stem cell research.We have a 20 month old baby with Sickle Cell SS and we currently are expecting a baby in February that we dont know the status on as of yet!Since this is a network dedicated to people with Sickle Cell I would like any input on what u think about Stem Cell Research and the ways that it can cure this disease.I would also like to know if anyone has ever met anyone that has considered having it done or has had this done .Thank U!

Hi nichole i have thought of all options posible and still struggling; BMT, stem cell you name it. It is unclear since it is still research. I have a 15 month old with SS and i would like to meet and talk with people who hav ethe same.
