It is no secret singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins has battled with sickle cell anemia for many, even chosing to hide her illness from fans for years before revealing she was ill in the early 2000s. Now she has partnered with Be The Match Registry….
“As a person with sickle cell disease and an advocate for everyone fighting this disease, I was naturally drawn to Be The Match,” Watkins said. “Unfortunately, myths about bone marrow donation keep many people from joining the Be The Match Registry and potentially saving a life. That is why I am passionate about encouraging everyone to learn the facts about bone marrow donation through these PSAs. We need more African Americans to step up.”
