When & Where
The Lydia Smith Sickle Cell Foundation
The Lydia Smith Sickle Cell Foundation and The Lydia Smith Patient Assistance Fund was founded & created by former NFL Linebacker Robert Mackey in honor of his mother who was diagnosed with sickle cell in 1994. At that time was told she had a life expectancy of 7 years. 20 years later, she's still alive and Mr. Mackey wants all families affect to continue to have their loved ones with them as well. Her namesake foundation benefits families affected by the disease. The fund is currently in use at The University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System in Chicago.
