Rare Disease Day Infographic

Rare Disease Day Infographic

Most people don’t know that there are over 7,000 rare diseases that affect a total of over 30 Million people in the US and 300 million people globally.

That is about 1 in 10 Americans, yet there are only therapies developed for about 400 of those diseases, leaving 94% without a treatment.

We’re supporting Rare Disease Day in an effort to bring more attention to all these diseases and hopefully provide better awareness, more treatment research and a quicker diagnosis for those suffering from these diseases.
