Welcome to Dreamsickle Kids Foundation, the pioneering Sickle Cell Organization in Nevada. Founded in 2018 by Executive Director Gina Glass, our heartfelt journey began with a personal experience that exposed the lack of knowledge and resources available for those impacted by Sickle Cell Disease in our state.
Our purpose is clear: to increase awareness, celebrate, educate, and support families affected by Sickle Cell Disease and Rare Diseases across Nevada. With unwavering dedication, we advocate for improved healthcare access, provide vital support services, and foster a community of empowerment for those living with these conditions.
Education and awareness are our weapons against the challenges faced by individuals with Sickle Cell Disease and Rare Diseases. We not only offer support to affected families but also educate medical providers and the wider community about the impact of these debilitating conditions.
Dreamsickle Kids proudly collaborates with organizations and individuals to elevate Sickle Cell Awareness within Nevada and across the United States. Through partnerships, events, and community engagement initiatives, we strive to ensure the unique needs of the Sickle Cell population and those affected by Rare Diseases are understood and addressed.
A significant milestone for us was the passing of AB254, a legislative achievement that sets Nevada on a path to better serve all its citizens, including the vital Sickle Cell population. This milestone demonstrates our progress in raising awareness and our commitment to advocating for improved healthcare policies and support systems.
Join us on this meaningful journey to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by Sickle Cell Disease and Rare Diseases. Together, we can raise awareness, provide support, and create a more inclusive and compassionate community for those facing these challenges.
