Nielly suffers from Sickle Cell Disease. Sickle Cell is a genetic blood disorder that causes many health complications. The most common symptom of the disease is severe pain, which requires frequent hospitalizations.

In September Nielly was admitted to the ICU for three weeks and received two blood transfusions. The crisis limited oxygen supply to her vital organs. As a result, test show decreased function of her kidneys, liver and spleen.

The only known cure for sickle cell disease is a stem cell transplant. Although this treatment will end her suffering it is not covered by our medical insurance. We are responsible for all expenses including travel. Nielly is a bright eyed, loving, sweet, strong and amazingly brave little girl. She is my inspiration. Please help us achieve Nielly's Hope for a better tomorrow.
