  • Description:
    People with sickle cell trait can donate blood, organs, and tissues. Yet fear and commonly held misperceptions keep them from donating to those whose lives may very well depend on it. Education is needed to eliminate these myths and ease people’s fears. Giving people the facts about blood, organ, and tissue donation can increase levels and frequency of donation, and, ultimately, save lives.
