Sickle Cell Anemia

Understanding Sickle Cell Disease: Impact and Challenges

Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder which affects the blood cell’s ability to carry oxygen through the body. Sickle Cell Disease disproportionately affects people of African descent although people of Hispanic descent are the fastest-growing ethnic group affected. Over 100,000 people in the U.S. suffer from Sickle Cell Disease. Under certain conditions, the blood cells sickle or change shape. Vasoocclusive crisis is the main condition that is unpredictable and the leading cause of debilitating pain and multi-organ damage.
