Terrell “Trizzy” Myles is a rapper and lyricist who wants to change the world through music and action. He grew up in a household filled with music and began rapping at an early age, despite having a genetic disorder that left him permanently deaf in one ear. By the seventh grade, he began to take music seriously and discovered he was prolific at writing songs. The 21-year old Arizona-based artist is now a rising star who has gained acclaim for his inspiring journey and using his craft to spread messages of positivity and hope, most recently through music about the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice.
"Blood is Thicker", is an original film created by Gift of Life Marrow Registry in partnership with Terrell to shed light on the grim disparities in blood cancer survival for Black and other people of color and the dire need to increase diverse marrow and stem cell donors in the registry to save more lives. The film features an original poem and music by Terrell.
"Blood is Thicker" was created as a labor of love and commitment to support the mission to create equal healthcare outcomes for everyone with our partners The Lucy Collective and The Mill.
