Great news, this is a life changing episode. Episode 40 is a bonus release issued to help celebrate Sickle Cell Awareness Month. This conversation is all about saving lives in the black community. Sickle Cell Disease is a genetic disorder that can affect any ethnicity or nationality, but in the US it disproportionately affects people of African descent. During this episode, I spoke with a long time friend Ebere who joined Be the Match’s donor registry many years ago and later donated her bone marrow, which helped save someone’s life. Listen to her experience and if you are willing to join the donor registry text SC3Carley to 61474 or visit https://join.bethematch.org/sc3carley.
As you will hear in the podcast, a bone marrow transplant can treat other illnesses besides sickle cell disease. It can also help cure certain types of cancer and other rare diseases. Visit Be The Match to see a complete list in this “Diseases Treatable by Transplants” article.
