I love holidays. All of them. I even love those special days we’ve created, “Sweetest Day”, “Grandparents Day”, “Take Your Child To Work Day”. But who knew I’d be so involved in something called “World Rare Disease Day” on February 28th. Not exactly something that was on my radar a couple years ago. But, here we are on this newly discovered “holiday” but what am I supposed to do? Buy presents? Decorate my house?
The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness among the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives. I asked myself, am I doing this? Am I doing the WRDD festivities? And thankfully, my answer was yes.
So I ask you, will you join me in celebrating this newly discovered “holiday” by supporting our foundation? You’d spend a few dollars on a card or flowers for boss’s day, so why not donate instead? You might not get a raise, but you’re helping to change lives.
