Our cause

Cianna's Smile offer support to families and brings communities affected by Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) conditions who live in the Thames Valley area together , as well as educating and raising awareness of the condition.

Cianna’s Smile was founded by the chairperson Hayley King and was registered as a charity in May 2017. The Registered Charity Number is 1173030. After her daughter (who has SCD) experienced a traumatic admission at their local hospital, Hayley felt that there was a lack of awareness of the condition in the medical profession and no local support for families affected by it. SCD is a life-threatening genetic blood disorder that causes many complications such as; children being at high risk of having strokes, blindness, organ failure, pulmonary hypertension, acute chest syndrome, Sickle Cell Crisis( this is when the sickle cells cause a blockage in a blood vessel resulting in severe pain and risk of complications) and more.

There are 250 000 carriers of Sickle Cell gene in England and over 15 000 with Sickle cell disease. We encourage people to be tested for Sickle Cell at any time and new born babies are now offered test for Sickle Cell .

Discounted rooms are available at the Hilton for our event. If you would like more information please contact us.

We hope you can join us!
