It is national Sickle Cell Awareness Month and it’s a disease that everyone should learn more about. Dr. Collier is here to teach us more. Sickle Cell affects around 200,000 Americans and it is a disease that you’re born with. The doctor also talks about the importance of finding out if you carry the trait or not.
