Rare Disease Day 2010 is coming up - February 28th, 2010. Contact any and all government officials and legislators you can, as well as any other people you know. There are over 25 million persons with a Rare Disease - one that affects less than 200,000 people. In most cases this is too small a population to support research or treatment development. However, with over 100 diseases in this classification there are a LOT of individuals and families dealing with these maladies. You can go to http://www.rarediseases.org/ for more information. Your thoughts and support are needed and welcomed.
