September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month!!!
Did you know that approximately 1 in 400 African Americans is born with Sickle Cell Anemia. SCD affects many more African Americans than inherited diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis, Phenylketonuria and Hemophilia. Did you know 1 out of every 10 African Americans have the trait??? ...and when both parents have the trait, there is a one in four chance (25%) with EACH pregancy that the child will inherit the disease????
To show my support to all of those affected by SCD .. including my daughter, Majestique will donate a larger percentage of it's profits for the month of September!!!
