People with blood disorders like thalassemia and sickle cell disease may need regular blood transfusions. Blood is more likely to be a safe match when the donor and the recipient share the same racial or ethnic background. To ensure that blood is available for everybody who needs it, we need to diversify the blood supply. Visit aabb.org/giveblood and schedule an appointment at your nearest blood center today. Let’s diversify the blood supply.
