We were invited to share our story at an American Red Cross Blood Mobile presentation. Generous donors funded a bloodmobile for our local Red Cross office. We were happy to represent The B Strong Group and share our story to let the donors see who their generous donation impacts. We were able to meet the donors and thank them in person. We shared our sickle cell story and told the about our organization and the things we want to do. We want to support those with sickle cell disease and the other organizations that provide support for those with sickle cell disease. We are determined to promote the importance of blood donation to those with sickle cell disease. We especially want to encourage African Americans to donate blood because a lot of sickle cell patients need our type of blood, as well. Blood donation will always be a priority to The B Strong Group because a blood transfusion helped to save our son’s life. We will never stop advocating.
