Amanda was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. This disease affects the oxygen-carrying capabilities of the blood, which deprives the body’s tissues and organs of the oxygen they need to stay healthy.
She needed a complete red cell exchange once a month. After years of these life-saving transfusions, she received a bone marrow transplant.
Amanda and her family thank local donors like you for saving her life.
