Rare diseases is a fast growing issue because of the vast number of diseases that exist. There are in fact 7,000 diseases that are known and more are discovered each day. Many of the people who suffer from rare diseases die because doctors are not able to diagnose their symptoms. This is because scientists and medical experts are not given the money to research about rare diseases and do not have the resources to diagnose the patients properly. Currently, the public thinks that since these diseases are rare, they do not affect many people. However, because of the high number of rare diseases that exist, many people do suffer from them. About 30 million people in the United States and 400 million in the world suffer from rare diseases. So please help scientists and rare disease patients by donating money. These patients are often forgotten by our community, but with your donation you will be taking one step closer to fixing this significant problem. By giving a donation you will be able to fund research and help families affected by rare diseases.
