World Rare Disease Day is Monday, Feb. 28th!
Reminder! -- this coming Monday, February 28, is World Rare Disease Day -- a day to honor and show support for all who are affected by a rare disease such as Niemann-Pick Disease.
Did you know that over 30 million Americans are affected by a rare disease? In the U.S., a rare disease is defined as any disease or disorder which affects fewer than 200,000 people at any given time.
Easy ways to show your support for World Rare Disease Day include wearing jeans to school or work, wearing and distributing PERSEVERE wristbands, or making a donation to support research into Niemann-Pick Disease.
Please visit our special World Rare Disease Day page to learn more about how you can participate in this worldwide observance. Thank you!
