The American Society of Hematology estimates that 8% of African-Americans carry the genetic mutation for sickle cell anemia.
This blood disease has destroyed the quality of life, and even killed its victims, for too long.
It is time for us to turn the tables on this disease and kill sickle cell anemia before it ruins the life of another person.
Sunshine Cremation Services is trying to do its part to eliminate sickle cell anemia.
We can arrange post-mortem DNA testing so that your descendants are warned if they are potential carriers of this hereditary gene mutation.
The cost of testing is low, and the collection of DNA is non-invasive.
Few laboratories in North America have the technology to perform post-mortem DNA testing. Sunshine Cremation, through its affiliates, has formed a relationship with one of the leading labs in this emerging area of medicine.
Of course, post-mortem DNA testing identifies other potential hereditary issues including genetic mutations that make your offspring more likely to contract cancer, suffer from cardiovascular disease, or die of Alzheimer’s or other degenerative brain diseases.
If you would like to learn more about post-mortem DNA testing and how you can give the gift of life to your descendants, please call Sunshine Cremation Services at 561-717-2876.
Please Note: Sunshine Cremation Services does not offer or perform post-mortem DNA testing. Such testing, if requested, is performed by an affiliate of Sunshine Cremation Services.
