The metabolic screaning they did on my son came back for positive for sickle cell anemia. I know that doesn't mean he has it, but that does mean he could have it. My son's father is not involved in his life and I don't know anything about it. What is the likeliness that he will have the disease? Is it expensive to treat? Is it life threatening? Will it significantly effect his life?
