In brief: Beta thal major

An allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is the only thing that can cure cooley's anemia if possible to be done.
Otherwise, the treatment mainly will be supportive care- i.e. Blood transfusion, iron chelating agent , folic acid, and other treatment to treat complications that commonly occur- such as heart problems, infection etc. Discuss further in detail with your hematologist.
