The Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario (SCAGO) will celebrate Black History Month with a month-long blood drive supporting people living with sickle cell disease in Ontario. Donate this month as a member of team SCAGO and you could win a Visa Gift Card!
Many individuals living with sickle cell disease require continuous blood transfusions, and individuals on this treatment option must receive blood from their community to reduce the chances of developing antibodies. By donating blood, you are supporting one of the most important sickle cell disease treatments available.
Who is Eligible?
To donate you must be at least 17 years old and in good general health. You are able to donate if you have sickle cell trait. You are not able to donate blood if you have sickle cell disease. Learn more about the requirements and process for donation on the Canadian Blood Services website here.
