Christina Milian, Reagan Gomez-Preston, Jill Marie Jones and a slew of others showed up yesterday at the Luncheon in Honor of Sickle Cell Patients during the Terrell Suggs Team Sizzle Celebrity Weekend at The Ritz Carlton Residences in Baltimore. As sickle cell is a particularly painful disease and most common amongst Blacks, be sure to test your partner for the trait before you decide to procreate.

    This is one disease that i don’t hear about, oh becuase it affects our race so it’s never a big issue/concern.

  • AzzedineAliaFan

    LOL@ hgdh

    I’m telling you, i see that all the time and i don’t get what’s the big deal of being first. It seems so childish.

    i am so happy about this.. i’ve never really heard anything about sickle cell in the media.. or about any organizations that support in the fight against it..

    it is really serious.. n i hope this will educate the other races.. and treatments at hospitals will improve!!..

    Sickle Cell Anemia affects millions of people worldwide. It’s most common in people whose families come from Africa, south or central America (especially Panama) Caribbean Islands, Mediterranean countries (such as Turkey, Greece and Italy), India and Saudia Arabia. In the United States, sickle cell anemia affects about 70,000 people. It mainly affects African Americans. The disease occurs in about 1 out of every 500 births. Sickle cell anemia also affects Hispanic Americans. The disease occurs in 1 out of every 36,000 births.

    It will be a very good to test your partner for the trait. I know I have to because I have the trait. I am blessed to not have the full blown desease though just the trait had me on my death-bed in the fall of 2005.

    @ She is

    My twins were born with the trait as well. The dr. explained to me that, They were not sick, just their future offspring may have it if their partner has the trait as well.
