You have it in you – you’re a Sickle Cell Fighter. That means that your blood has what it takes to help children and adults battling sickle cell disease.
- In the United States about 100,000 people have the disease – of which 90 percent are of African descent.
- Regular blood transfusions are a necessary treatment for many patients to help fight severe pain, anemia, organ damage and even stroke.
- When you give blood, you’re helping patients with sickle cell disease live with more vitality and less pain. They need you.
You Deserve Recognition! As a thank you for your commitment to being a Sickle Cell Fighter, when you give blood two or more times in 2019, you’ll receive a token of appreciation as part of our sickle cell donor recognition program*.
