June 19th Is World Sickle Cell Day

We extend a helping hand to recognize June 19th as WORLD SICKLE CELL DAY. Please find a link to a short video which tells the story of two families.They share their losses, and their hopes to save more lives by recruiting new diverse donors to the Gift of Life Marrow Registry.
At present the ONLY cure for sickle cell disease is a bone marrow or stem cell transplant (MIN 2019 report). However, many patients cannot find a match.
Gift of Life has waged war on sickle cell, but we need your help to win. Ask everyone you know to visit. Together we can save lives. https://www.giftoflife.org/dc/SickleCellAwareness~mb
