children Since thalassemia is a chronic illness, the key to successful management of the disease is the integration of psychological wellness and counseling along with medical care.

Health care providers will encounter many complex personal and cultural issues when caring for thalassemia patients and their families. These are our experiences.

In this section you will find information on what to expect from your child's development, what to expect as a patient and ways in which you can ease transitions.

Please also see our section on Support and Resources.
