Rare Disease Day
February 28, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Help FMM observe Rare Disease Day 2017: “Join us in making the Voice of Rare Disease Heard”
Rare Disease Day is for patients, care givers, researchers, friends – for all of us – to show our support for the approximately 30 million people in the United States, and estimated 350 million worldwide, who suffer from over 7,000 different rare diseases and disorders.
Rare diseases truly do not impact a few, but many, when we add up all the diseases that fall into the rare category. Research and awareness is critical as breakthroughs surrounding rare diseases so often help answer difficult questions asked by more commonly known diseases, aiding an even larger circle of patients.
You can get involved in the Rare Disease movement in a meaningful way with your friends at FMM. Email us at email@example.com to join the #give28on28 movement! Thank you for caring about the rare disease community.https://fmm.ejoinme.org/give28on28
