Info about sickle cell disease

Dear Visitors to the website,

Sickle cell disease is one of the most common hereditary diseases worldwide. In Germany, approximately 3000-5000 people are affected.

On the website, those persons who are affected, their relatives and other interested parties can find information about sickle cell disease. A better understanding of the disease will enable you to actively influence the state of the disease or its course.

When sickle cell disease is diagnosed, the patient can feel very insecure. Parents, in particular, can ask themselves what the diagnosis means for the life of their child. Confronting the disease can help to make it easier to deal with.
