September is National Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month and we would like to share the stories of four truly astonishing children and young adults. They are all Valerie Fund kids and have been treated at a Valerie Fund Children's Center near them. Please read their stories and learn why The Valerie Fund is proud of its role supporting children fighting complex medical problems.
September is a very important month for The Valerie Fund. In the United States, September has been designated both National Children's Cancer Awareness Month and National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. The healthcare heroes of The Valerie Fund Children's Centers are dedicated to supporting the children who battle both pediatric cancer and blood disorders so we want to share a little bit more about these two special designations as well as what we can all do during this time to maximize the support for our kids.
