Hi Susan,

I don't have a rare disease but do know a number of people with varying types rare conditions including Hypophosphatasia (HPP), Myelofibrosis (bone cancer), Progeria (aging disease) and Rapp-Hodgkin syndrome (genetic multi-system disorder), just to name a few.

My job in health care public relations has exposed me to a number of people with diseases that I have never heard of. Patients, parents and caregivers are desperate for information or support available so however I can put tips or patient experiences out there then I feel I am doing my part to help others in need.

Thanks for joining this group.

Thanks for this info, cbegun.

I did not know there was a Rare Disease Day which is pretty telling, right?

I know of only one or two people with a rare disease - do you have one?

There are so many diseases that don't have enough information, resources or support especially those that are rare conditions. This group, I hope, provides a place where women can start to find the information they are seeking with others looking to share experiences, and insights. This is a more targeted location for rare diseases specifically.
