Our Mission


The Faith Thomas Foundation is dedicated to providing support to individuals living with Sickle Cell Disease and aiding in a smooth transition of care from childhood to adulthood. 

Our Mission


The Faith Thomas Foundation is dedicated to providing support to individuals living with Sickle Cell Disease and aiding in a smooth transition of care from childhood to adulthood. 

The Faith Thomas Foundation was created to help raise funds and awareness to benefit and provide support to the transitional program between Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to improve the care of patients as they transition from childhood to adulthood. This transition program will provide services that will make for a seamless transition.

 The transition from childhood to adulthood is already a tough transition. Living with Sickle Cell makes it even more difficult.  There are many factors that cause this transition to be difficult.  

  • A higher proportion of Sickle Cell adolescents receiving public health insurance
  • Limited insurance coverage and reimbursement for care coordination. 
  • Low high school and graduation and financial independence 
  • There is a high rate of mortality in the 18-26 year old population. 

Faith Thomas Foundation is dedicated to help make the change from childhood care to adult care as easy on the patient and caregivers as possible. Our main goal is to help provide financial support to help patients deal with Sickle Cell and medical systems as adults. 

By bringing awareness and generating financial opportunities we will be helping build a transition program that includes:

  • One year transition clinic
  • Formal Education program from age 16-25
  • Overnight Retreat 
  • Continue Peer Mentoring
  • Registry spanning across the pediatric and adult program
  • Integrate Mental Health Transition
  • Health Economic Involvement
  • Patient and Family Involvement
