Do you know anyone with sickle cell anemia or sickle cell trait? I am not asking for names, just curious to know if anyone actually does. I am not sure, even in our own family. By the way, this shouldn't prevent a person from being successful. The new president of Howard University, Wayne A. I. Frederick, M.D., MBA, FACS, is a prime example of a successful person with sickle cell anemia.
