The Gift of Life: A Brave Girl Thrives Thanks to Blood Donations

Each day, the Red Cross must collect 14,000 blood donations for patients in need – patients like 13-year-old Taytiana “TT” – who lives with sickle cell disease. Sickle cell is a blood disorder that affects as many as 100,000 people in the U.S., most of them are African-American. Sickle cell patients, like TT, can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives. Give now. Your donation is critical.
