Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder that most often affects people with ancestors from parts of Africa and Asia. Some people with thalassemia need monthly blood transfusions to live. They rely on people with similar ancestry to donate healthy blood so they can have full and prosperous lives. Visit our website to learn how you can help diversify the blood supply.
