Donate Blood In San Diego County During Sickle Cell Awareness Month & More News

 

SAN DIEGO, CA — September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month. The American Red Cross is emphasizing the importance of a diverse blood supply and encouraging people to donate blood to help meet the needs of those with sickle cell disease — the most common inherited blood disorder in the U.S.

Sickle cell disease impacts more than 100,000 people across the country, most of whom are of African descent. According to the Red Cross, 1 in 3 African American blood donors is a match for people with sickle cell disease, which distorts soft, round blood cells and turns them hard and crescent-shaped and can cause severe pain.

“When cells harden, they can get caught in blood vessels, potentially leading to stroke and organ failure,” said Dr. Ross Herron, divisional chief medical officer for the American Red Cross. “Transfusions provide healthy blood cells, unblocking blood vessels and delivering oxygen, minimizing crises patients with sickle cell may face.”
