Dreamsickle Kids Foundation is the 1st Sickle Cell organization in Nevada. Founded in 2018 by a mother, Gina Glass who relocated to Nevada with her two daughters, one of which has Sickle Cell Disease. She saw the need for supportive services and knowledgeable medical professionals because of her personal experience and needs. Since founding the organization, Nevada now has its 1st Sickle Cell bill, a Sickle Cell state registry because of the bill, a Sickle Cell State Action plan in progress, and a Rare Disease Advisory Council which Gina Glass, our Executive Director is now apart of. Because Sickle Cell is one of 7000 rare diseases. This year Dreamsickle Kids has expanded its mission to raise awareness and support for all rare diseases in Nevada.
