WORLD RARE DISEASE DAY IS FEBRUARY 29, 2016

On Rare Disease Day, millions of patients and their families around the world share their stories to promote awareness of the challenges, hopes and needs of those living with rare diseases. 2016 marks the ninth year that the international rare disease community celebrates Rare Disease Day. The Rare Disease Day 2016 theme ‘Patient Voice’ recognises the crucial role that patients play in voicing their needs and in instigating change that improves their lives and the lives of their families and caregivers.

To plan your celebration, visit the Rare Disease Day website.  To learn more about coping with a rare disease in your life, visit the Global Genes website for helpful toolkits on how to manage your rare disease.
