 Sickle cell anemia is one of the most prevalent genetic diseases in our country, mostly affecting people of African descent. Although symptoms of this disease have been around for hundreds of years, it wasn’t until 1910 that the oddly

We're celebrating National Blood Donor Month and encouraging you to join the thousands who already give the gift of life. You can start the New Year by saving a life and by monitoring your health through the Wellness Rewards Program. Start donating and earn points to redeem or pass on to family and friends later this year for select health screenings as part of our goal to bring healthier choices to donors across South Texas.
