We first met 5-year-old Za’Quis in 2017. His mother shared the story from just two years earlier when the agony of a sickle cell pain crisis required the toddler to receive a blood transfusion.

Now 9 years old, Za’Quis remains superhero strong. He loves to play video games and basketball. He still loves fro-yo, and Bojangles makes his favorite chicken. Za’Quis and his family continue to give back to their community through Piedmont Health Services and Sickle Cell Agency, and tirelessly raise awareness about sickle cell and the importance of blood donors for those battling the disease.
