Our mission is to #MakeSickleCellPopular by increasing awareness, educating ,and advocating for long term changes for the SCD population of Nevada to improve Equity and access to care for those affected by SCD and other Rare Diseases while also addressing health disparities.
Our Vision is to be a community leader in advocating for those affected by Sickle Cell, Rare Disease and those underserved in Nevada. Our vision will be achieved by bringing communities together through social events that provide support, community outreach, education, resources and awareness for Sickle Cell Disease and other disparities affecting marginalized communities.

In a one of a kind partnership, Dreamsickle Kids and JET Foundation has come together to open the first SCD community center and a resource center like no other.

We look forward to welcoming the community of Nevada to enjoy the benefits and magic that is the Aspiration Center.
Your generous donation will help Dreamsickle Kids Foundation continue to #MAKESICKLECELLPOPULAR and help provide access to resources for children and families affected by Sickle Cell Diseas and all Rare Diseses in Nevada.
