Our team of local providers is working every day to ensure kids with sickle cell disease have full, active lives. With lifesaving treatments, education and preventative screenings, Seattle Children’s aims to be a support system for your child - from their health to life at school and at home.
“Seattle Children's and OBCC helped to save my daughter's life. They are like our backbone, standing with us.”
– Amna, Jude’s mom
Jude’s pain started at just four days old. Her family was scared and heartbroken, so they went looking for answers – and found Seattle Children’s, together with the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic.
Our team includes a social worker and psychologist to help your child and your family through the challenges of sickle cell. Genetic counseling and testing can help parents and other family members understand the chance of having the sickle cell gene or passing it on.
Having sickle cell disease can be stressful for the entire family. If your child has an urgent need, we will see them right away.
Our services support both urgent and long-term needs.
During visits, we take time to explain your child’s condition, so you can fully understand all your treatment options. Read about our services for patients and families, from financial counseling to interpreter services.
Seattle Children’s and the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic are working together to develop the Sickle Cell Disease Program to offer the best care possible for our patients. We’re so grateful for the incredible advocacy of our families, community members and the Metropolitan Seattle Sickle Cell Task Force, who helped us understand that we need to do more for our patients with sickle cell disease. An external Sickle Cell Advisory Board is forming to help guide our efforts. We’re committed to creating a sickle cell center of excellence.
Our team cares for your whole child. We don’t just treat their disease. We connect you to community resources and support groups.
We can support you and your child with financial counseling, schooling, housing, transportation, legal aid, interpreter services and spiritual care. Read about our services for patients and families.
Our sickle cell disease team is constantly researching new and improved treatments and processes that can improve the lives of our patients.
Our sickle cell team provides services throughout Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. Even if you live too far away to visit us in person, we can consult with your family and child’s doctors so your child gets the best care possible.
