Our family has experienced firsthand the difficulties and struggles that are associated by raising a child with Sickle Cell Anemia. Hina Patel Foundation is in memory of our courageous daughter who battled Sickle Cell Anemia for 17 years followed by the complications from a bone marrow transplant for two additional years. In spite of her struggles, her perseverance for an education, a positive attitude, and a jovial personality prevailed.
