ATTENTION: The SCD Community Could Use Your Help

Imagine your father has just suffered a heart attack and must undergo open-heart surgery in order to repair the damage…

Picture your baby niece or nephew was born with a heart defect and requires daily transfusions of blood in order to have a chance at survival…

Consider that, in the United States, most people with sickle cell anemia (SCD) are, at any moment, in desperate need of a blood donation…

Naturally, you’d hope and expect the hospital to have enough resources to facilitate all these health needs and more. Everyone needs blood, but especially surgical patients, burn victims, accident victims, hemophiliacs, fatally sick children, and persons suffering from leukemia, cancer, kidney and liver disease, and sickle cell anemia.

There is one way to assist in times like this: by donating blood.

Imagine, picture, and consider the people who so need your help. You could play a vital role in saving someone’s life. You could be a guardian angel. Click here to read more.

When we were little, we all did stupid things. We never thought about the consequences or how dangerous the situation was—we just did whatever seemed fun.

It is a miracle that we have all made it this far.

Perhaps there was someone looking out for us. Perhaps we had our own guardian angels.

But we aren’t the only ones who need saving. Sometimes, we have to do the saving. Your blood donation is needed; consider your options.
