It is World Thalassemia Day!

Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin.

Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in large numbers of red blood cells being destroyed, which leads to anemia.
