Are you the Giving Type? Did you know that by donating blood, you can be a lifeline for those fighting sickle cell disease?
It’s quick with just one session you can save up to three lives!
“Why does ethnicity matter? Well, ethnically matched blood saves lives.
Black people are ten times more likely to have the Ro subtype than people from any other ethnic background. However, the shortage of Black blood donors makes it harder to find the best matched blood for black patients.
We urgently need more Black blood donors to help patients with sickle cell, and ensure they get the best treatment possible.”
