Cooley's Anemia

Cooley's Anemia Foundation

The Cooley's Anemia Foundation (CAF) serves people affected by the fatal genetic blood disease thalassemia, or Cooley's anemia, often found in people of Mediterranean descent. Its mission is to advance treatment, enhance the quality of life of patients and educate the medical community, trait carriers and the public about the disease.

The SIF has contributed $2 million to the CAF to date. The Cooley's Anemia Foundation is a designated SIF National Charity. Sylvia Summa is chair of the Sons of Italy® National Cooley's Anemia Committee.
