American Red Cross needs donors of all blood types to maintain a diverse supply

 

American Red CrossNashville, TN – During National Sickle Cell Awareness Month, the American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood to help ensure a stable and diverse blood supply for patients in need.

Blood donors may be helping patients like 11-year-old Martin Mwita who has sickle cell disease. His body doesn’t produce enough healthy red cells to carry adequate oxygen through his body, so he relies on monthly transfusions to stabilize his health.

The Red Cross Responds to Tennessee Floods and Tornadoes

 

American Red CrossClarksville, TN – After days of storms, tornadoes, and floods, residents of Tennessee are left in the trail of destruction. With little notice, many residents of Tennessee were inundated with tornadoes as others were forced to evacuate, saving only as much as they could carry, and must wait anxiously to return until the water levels recede to a safe level. As hundreds of homes are affected by the tornadoes, the floods will affect additional homes. The storms left hundreds of thousands of people without power.
