What is Sickle Cell

Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes red blood cells to form into a crescent shape, like a sickle. These cells break apart easily, clump together, and stick to the walls of blood vessels, blocking the flow of blood, which can lead to a range of serious health issues.

 

  • Sickle Cell is one of the most common genetic diseases in the world.

  • There are over 250,000 carriers of the Sickle Cell Gene in England.

  • There is a 1 in 4 chance that a baby can have Sickle Cell Anaemia if both parents are Sickle Cell Trait carriers.
