Quinn was diagnosed with sickle cell disease when she was just three weeks old. But thanks to blood donors like you, she is out there living her best life, traveling the world and going to graduate school. 

September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month, and we’re helping tell the story of how blood donors make a difference in the lives of these patients.

Right now, 100,000 Americans are living with sickle cell disease. There is no cure for the hereditary blood disorder, and blood transfusions are the most common treatment for it. For sickle cell patients, a blood transfusion is often the difference between life and death.

“You're giving people life. There are people who cannot live without these blood transfusions. And until a cure is found, these are keeping people living and breathing and living their best life.”
