Raising Sickle Cell Awareness
September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month! We're asking you to help us raise consciousness around sickle cell by using your voice, your networks, your time, and your resources. Take action to make a difference!
Versiti and American Red Cross blood drives support sickle cell

Thousands of people with sickle cell rely on blood transfusions to maintain their health. The best matches come from someone with the same ethnic background. Make a plan to donate. Help diversify our blood supply.
Host a Sickle Sabbath at your place of worship

Sickle cell disease starts with sickle cell trait and can affect anyone of any race or ethnicity.
We welcome all faiths to join us in educating their members about the prevalence of sickle cell disease, how it's inherited, and why it all starts with being certain about your sickle cell trait status.
