About Sickle Cell Disease
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited, non-contagious red blood cell disorder that can be debilitating, excruciatingly painful, and life-threatening. The lifelong disease most frequently affects African Americans, people of Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean heritage. A bone marrow transplant surgery is the only known cure for SCD.
