September 6, 2011 — More than 25 years ago, Darlene Logan learned her unborn son would have sickle cell disease, a congenital and life-threatening condition. She turned to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for help then and again numerous times through his life. When her son Marc turned 24 in October 2011, he was heading for graduate school.
Today, Darlene Logan serves as the co-chair of the campaign to raise funds and awareness of sickle cell disease and clinical research programs at CHOP.
Darlene Logan's story and the promising new sickle cell research by Alan W. Flake, MD, was featured in The Philadelphia Tribune.
