Tri-County Black Nurses Association

2024 Blood Drive

TCBNA thanks each and every blood donor, sponsor (Pfizer) partner (MUSC Pediatric Hematology Oncology) and volunteer who came out yesterday to support our blood drive. TCBNA remains committed to providing awareness and elevating issues that disproportionately affect Black communities. As we honored our very own Elizabeth Ganaway on June 17th, 2023, many of you may also know someone who lives with sickle cell every day.

A single sickle cell patient can require multiple blood transfusions per year throughout their lifetime in order to treat complications from sickle cell disease. It is critical to have a diverse group of blood donors to help all patients in need. Will you donate today? Please visit for more information.
