Sinerge’ Education and Awareness for Sickle Cell Disease

0 /25

One blood donation can help save up to three lives. That means a lot to patients in need, but it took on a new meaning recently.

Without volunteer blood donors, our story might have had a different ending. Help me reach my goal and ensure that patients receive the life saving blood they need. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.

Although blood donations from all ethnic groups are needed, African-American’s who give blood may be able to help people affected by Sickle Cell Disease. Sickle Cell is an inherited blood disorder that affects more than 80,000 people in the U.S., 98 percent of whom are African American. People with sickle cell disease may need  frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives and other African-Americans can often provide blood which may more closely match the blood of these patients in need.  While African-Americans represent 12 to 14 percent of the total U.S. population, only about 1 percent of the African-American community donates blood

What your donors are up to...

Take a photo of yourself donating blood and share it! Just use #dayofservice
