September is Sickle Cell Awareness and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

09/05/2019 5:32 PM | Anonymous

Students battling sicle cell anemia and childhood cancer depend on blood donations for health and strength this school year. Blood transfused from donors of similar ethnicities helps to prevent sickle cell patients from experiencing complications. Blood and platelet transfusions help children battling cancers to endure tough cancer treatments. Hurricane Dorian has forced the cancellation of approximately 70 Red Cross blood drives, resulting in more than 1,800 uncollected blood and platelet donations. Please donate blood today.
