CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – A young lady tonight is cured of sickle cell disease thanks to a novel approach to blood stem cell transplantation.  When we met Katlin Watts one year ago, she faced severe pain crises from her disease that would send her to the hospital for weeks at a time.

Now, one year after transplant, Katlin is a young woman with a wonderful future ahead of her.  The local transplant team that helped her is now helping other children whose diseases would have killed them.
