Is sickle-cell Anemia inherited or mutated?

SICKLE CELL is an inherited genetic blood disorder. Sickle Cell was the 1st genetic disorder that was ever discovered. In order for a person to have "sickle cell disease" they have to inherit the sickle cell gene from each parent. Sickle cell happened because of a gene mutation that started because of Malaria. Everyone who had the "sickle cell trait" (One sickle cell gene) had a better chance of fighting off Malaria.
