"A patient with the genetic blood disorder known as sickle cell disease lives with a condition that is characterized by red blood cells that assume an abnormal sickle shape. Normally red blood cells are shaped like small donuts. According to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthy red blood cells are round and they move through small blood vessels to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. In sickle cell disease, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a sickle" (Johnson and Williams, 2011, p. 2)
