    My parents both know that they were carriers, and they tested me for sickle cell while I was in the womb.

    Did your parents know their genotype?

    Yes, my parents knew.  I am the youngest of 10 children.

    My parents did not know until they had me and I started getting sick.

    Nop, they didn’t know even about this disease.

    My parents were unaware of being carriers.  They found out only after I started getting sick.

    Oh wow, the youngest of 10! That’s amazing!!!

    If you don’t mind me asking, do any of your siblings have sickle cell too?

    A lot of couples are like your parents Viviane, not knowing until the child starts showing symptoms.

    Do you know what age you were diagnosed?

    Hey Kassem, yeah a lot of people are in the same boat!

    When did they eventually find out?
