Marqus Valentine | Sickle Cell Disease


Marqus Valentine has beaten sickle cell disease – and the odds. Many sickle cell disease patients do not live into adulthood. Marqus has made it into his 30s thanks to the generosity of blood donors, who have helped him receive more than 500 life-saving donations during his life. He’s grateful to blood donors and is now giving back to help other sickle cell patients in need.
