In celebration of Black History Month, the virtual American Red Cross student chapter, in collaboration with the Purdue Global Office of Organizational Culture and Inclusive Excellence and PG Student Life, would like to invite everyone across the nation to donate blood to raise awareness of Sickle Cell Anemia. Blood donors who are Black play a critical role in helping people with sickle cell disease, the most common genetic blood disease in the U.S. Patients with the disease may rely on regular blood transfusions throughout their lives. It is essential that the blood they receive be the most compatible match possible from someone of the same race or similar ethnicity.
Today, there aren’t enough blood donors to meet this urgent need. By donating blood, you can make a difference in the lives of a patient with sickle cell disease, as well as moms with complicated childbirths, people fighting cancer, accident or trauma victims being raced to emergency rooms, and many more.
