Sam Blackman's Story

Here's why I'm climbing for Sickle Forward: as a pediatric hematologist-oncologist, I've seen the spectrum of diseases that can change the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults. Sickle cell disease is one of those diseases where the amount of suffering that it causes is wildly out of proportion to the attention that it gets.

I'm proud to join this fundraising effort in support of Sickle Forward and sickle cell disease research. While recent advances in biology and gene therapy have made new treatments, and even cures, possible, they remain too far out of reach for the vast majority of patients, and we need new therapies that are both impactful and accessible.

Please help me support this important cause.
