How important is the sickle cell anemia gene to you?
To change the present and the future, take action!
Are you a carrier?
Have you been tested?
Are you informed?
BE A CARRIER OF THE GENE OR HAVE THE ILLNESS
Whoever carries the sickle cell anemia gene will never develop the disease. However, parents who are carriers can pass the gene or the disease on to their child. When both parents are carriers, 1 in 4 children may develop sickle cell disease.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 300,000 children are born each year with this serious blood disease. In addition to research, funding, and medical care, screening remains the key to a better future.
Anyone born before 2016 should be able to get tested in our public health system. If you’ve experienced obstacles in the past, make an appointment with Dr. Shiller Castor to be tested for sickle cell anemia.
