Rare Disease Day 2022
February 28th 2022 – Rare Disease Day.
There are over 300 million people around the world living with a rare disease, 50% who are children.
72% of the 7000 diagnosed rare conditions are genetic diseases. Accurate diagnosis and opportunities for treatment remains an issue for many.
Today we want to raise awareness for MCOPS12 which is an ultra-rare genetic neurological disease affecting only 50 children worldwide. Today is the day to show our strength as part of the global rare disease community.
We will pursue our mission to raise awareness and fundraising to support scientific research and clinical development that will ultimately result in a cure. Let´s make the impossible possible.
