Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes red blood cells to form into abnormal sickle shapes.
It is estimated that sickle cell disease affects 90,000 to 100,000 people in the United States – mainly African-Americans.
But according to recent statistics, this disease is also affecting many in the Latino community.
On this edition of “Centro”, WBZ’s Yadires Nova-Salcedo talks about this with the Founding President of the Greater Boston Sickle Cell Disease Association (GBSCDA) Reverend Ronald Stephenson.
