The Faith Thomas Foundation was formed in June 2013 by individuals whose lives have been personally impacted by sickle cell disease. In 2016, we became committed to educating the community about sickle cell disease and became involved in other community events. By 2017, the Faith Thomas Foundation became committed in developing programs to further raise awareness about sickle cell disease by hosting our own community programs and events. Due to our work ethic, the Faith Thomas Foundation has been designated as a BBB Accredited Charity since June 2018.

The Faith Thomas Foundation raises 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.
