Did You Know Sickle Cell Disease Affects One Out of Thirteen African Americans?

Jazz 91.9 WCLK has been proud to bring you facts throughout September from The Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorder Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Did you know one out of thirteen African Americans is born with sickle cell trait? Even without symptoms they may pass this horrible, painful disease on to their children someday. This has to stop. Please help fight sickle cell disease.  Learn more about the fight at the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta by visiting choa.org/fightsicklecell.
