Each year it seems like the next is so far away but before you know it it's time to celebrate and recognize this special day again. Rare Disease Day is gaining momentum throughout the United States and the world and our hope is that one day it will be acknowledged by all as a cause to be supported by ALL. If the theory of Six Degrees of Separation is to be believed and we are truly only six levels of knowing away from each and every world citizen then each and every one of us knows someone who suffers with, or supports someone with a Rare Disease. How can we ever stop fighting for them, for their rights, and for continued research and searches for causes and cures? Even though this platform...and fight...was chosen for me, it's one that I am thankful to carry out. The work continues to be the blessing.
Very recently we were able to add another Rare Disease Day Proclamation to our list: Along with the State of Michigan, The City of Detroit, and Pittsfield Township, we can now add The County of Washtenaw. So Proud To Be From Michigan as we lead the way on this!!
My thanks to everyone who hangs in there with me. It's the little things that add up to big things and it's the big things that get things done.
