    Growing up we would have heard the term “sickle cell” a lot, but who was the person to sit you down and actually explain to you what it meant?

    Was it your parents, siblings, teachers, doctors or your own research?

    My mom taught me what I know about Sickle Cell. She had Sickle Cell and my dad had Sickle Cell trait so she was more knowledgeable and shared her experiences with me.
