This diseases affects all people of color which includes the African American, the Latin communities, etc. One in 12 people of African American descent have Sickle cell Anemia trait. Sickle Cell is the name of a specific form of sickle-cell disease in which there is homozygosity for the mutation that causes HbS. Sickle-cell anaemia is also referred to as "HbSS", "SS disease", "haemoglobin S", or permutations thereof. Other, rarer forms of sickle-cell disease include sickle-haemoglobin C disease (HbSC), sickle beta-plus-thalassaemia (HbS/β+) and sickle beta-zero-thalassaemia (HbS/β0). These other forms of sickle-cell disease are compound heterozygous states in which the person has only one copy of the mutation that causes HbS and one copy of another abnormal haemoglobin allele. The term "disease" is applied since the inherited abnormality causes a pathological condition that can lead to death and severe complications. Not all inherited variants of haemoglobin are detrimental, a concept known as genetic polymorphism. Some people who suffer with this disease are T-Boz of TLC and Prodigy of the rap group Mobb Deep. SO many people have the trait and don't even know about it. This disease is closer to you than you know, so don't sleep on it.
