    If she has sickle cell anemia, she would've been born with it. It's a recessive trait, passed down by both parents. You'd have to have both recessive alleles from your parents in order for the condition to express itself.

    You can also have a heterozygous allele combination, with only one parent passing down the allele for the condition.

    What does this mean? Only if both parents passed you the recessive allele would you have it. If you're heterozygous, the condition won't be expressed. But bonus! You're immune to malaria if you're heterozygous.

    My point is, she would've known a long time ago if she was positive for two recessive alleles.

    No, it's a black Type 182. That model was only called "Thing" in the US, and that's clearly a RHD model with a non-American licence plate. :coffee:

    Sickle cell anemia started out looking very promising but then lost traction.
