Give Blood, Save Lives

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Awareness Month.

Cancer patients are a top user group of blood components and that includes children. Often, cancer patients need transfusions to bring critical blood cell levels up in order to continue receiving chemotherapy.

Sickle cell patients need transfusions to help them during a sickle cell crisis in which distorted blood cells get stuck in the vessels which can cause pain, organ damage and stroke.
