SICKLE CELL AWARENESS
GET TESTED!! GET TESTED!!
I wrote an article earlier about the importance of testing for the Sickle Cell Trait. And needed family planning.This is Soooo important for the prevention of suffering of the child that is born with SCD...and the parents that WILL suffer going through that childs' shortened lifetime .However short ,you wouldn't want that child to suffer would you? Of course not! The ONLY way to prevent that outcome,IS TO GET TESTED NOW. Become knowledgeable about SCD family planning .Insist on your partner getting tested (and VERIFY IT!) If you are child bearing capable or have active sperm.PLEASE get tested.If you are not .TELL YOUR CHILDREN and YOUR GRANDS To Get TESTED.
You CAN Help.
