1 Million for RARE

1 Million for RARE needs you!

World RARE Disease Day is coming up on February 29th. Did you know that 1 in 10 Americans are affected by RARE diseases and more than 350 million people are affected worldwide. 75% of RARE diseases affect children and 30% of children with a RARE disease will die before their 5th birthday.

Do these statistics astonish you?

The Global Genes Project is a grassroots effort to bring more awareness to the rare disease community as more awareness will lead to more support and funding which will aid in developing treatments and cures. Currently only 5% of rare diseases have any sort of treatment; there are no cures.

Call to actions:

• Join our “1 Million for RARE” movement and like our Global Genes Project Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/globalgenesproject
•  Tweet with us @GlobalGenes. Use #1Mil4RARE
• Tell a friend about this project!

Just by sharing the message you will be helping to raise awareness as we head into World RARE Disease Day on February 29th. The rare disease community thanks you for listening.
