NHS urges black Britons to give blood as demand rises over life-saving transfusions for sickle cell patients

The i says the sister of a teenager with sickle cell has overcome her fear of needles and donated blood for the first time to help others like her brother who lives with the devastating effect of the blood disorder. 

Zenith Seyi-Abiodun, 18, says she is giving blood to thank the blood donors who are saving her 16 year old brother Charming’s life and to encourage more black people to help their family and the community by donating to help other sickle cell patients.

The siblings, from Gorton, in Manchester, came together for Zenith’s first blood donation in a symbolic reversal of their usual roles.
