January is National Blood Donor Month. The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America invites you to join us for a virtual blood drive to support sickle cell warriors!
Did you know…
– That blood transfusions are one of the most critical treatments for sickle cell patients, but less than 10% of Americans donate blood?
– That sickle cell patients benefit most from blood transfusions from people of the same race or similar ethnicity, but only five percent of blood donors are of African ancestry?
Join us in recognizing National Blood Donor Month and help us make a difference for SCD patients by pledging to donate blood. It takes one hour, and you could save someone’s life. Thank you for your support!
