Daisha Dillon has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Battling the pain and disability of sickle cell disease since she was a child, Daisha had long been discouraged from having a baby for fear it would worsen her symptoms. But the team at UConn Health’s New England Sickle Cell Institute and Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic helped make Daisha’s lifelong dream possible so this Thanksgiving she’ll be celebrating with her 3 month old baby girl.
