Demier's Story

Demier, born with sickle cell disease, received a cure — a stem cell transplant. “He’s had a second chance at life,” his mom says. “He does things he could never do before, playing football with his friends, running, going to the pool. Thanks to Children’s National Hospital, he’s a regular, active and happy kid.”
