in sickle cell trait you don't actually have the disease. you

are only able to pass the disease to your kids if you marry a

person with sickle cell or that also has the trait. sickle cell

disease is when you actually have the disease. you can pass it to

your kids if you marry someone with the trait or the disease. if

you marry someone without a trait or disease then your kids will

most likely have the trait.
