Did you know that you are at risk of developing a rare form of kidney cancer if you have the sickle cell trait? Neither did we, until my younger brother was diagnosed with renal medullary carcinoma in 2012. This cancer is extremely devastating with a very poor outcome. Please visit my website for more information at rmcsupport.org
We are also on Instagram, Twitter, Snap chat, YouTube and Pinterest.
If you know anyone with sickle cell trait, please urge them to have their kidney's screened (ultrasound) on a yearly basis.
