Dr.Charles Drew Blood Drive by Red Cross

Join Dreamsickle Kids Foundation as we honor Dr.Charles Drew with Red Cross for the 2nd Annual Dr.Charles Drew Blood Drive in Las Vegas. The drive is to encourage diversity in blood donations as African Americans have one of the lowest blood donation rates. People benefit from receiving blood from those of the same ethnicity. This cuts down on the possibility of the build up of antibodies in the blood that can cause a rejection of the transfusions which can be fatal. It is important to add diversity to donations especially as it pertains to those with Sickle Cell Disease as they are mostly of African descent and may require frequent blood transfusions to maintain their quality of life.  More information will provided at the Warrior Drive and in the weeks to come.

In America over 100,000 individuals suffer from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and 1 in every 12 African American babies are born with the Sickle Cell Trait (SCT). What is Sickle Cell? Sickle Cell Disease is a severe form of anemia which is inherited. SCD occurs when there is low oxygen levels in red blood cells and they become crescent or "sickle" shaped and sticky as opposed to the normal round flexible shape of a red blood cell.

What is Sickle Cell?

image35


SCD is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. Healthy red blood cells are round, and they move through small blood vessels to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. In someone who has SCD, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle”. The sickle cells die early, which causes a constant shortage of red blood cells. Also, when they travel through small blood vessels, they get stuck and clog the blood flow. This can cause pain and other serious problems such infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. 

It is estimated that:

  • SCD affects approximately 100,000 Americans.
  • SCD occurs among about 1 out of every 365 Black or African-American births.
  • SCD occurs among about 1 out of every 16,300 Hispanic-American births.
  • About 1 in 13 Black or African-American babies is born with sickle cell trait (SCT).
