February 28

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The goal of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives. This year’s Rare Disease Day theme is : Rare is many. Rare is strong. Rare is proud.

This theme is our call to action. Let’s elevate our voices as a united rare disease community.
Leading up to Rare Disease Day on February 28th, we invite each person impacted by rare disease to share their #RareIn60.

Create a 60-second video,
60-second photo collage or
60-word summary of what you’d like others to know about cystinosis/the rare disease that has affected your life.

Your message can be geared towards friends and family, colleagues, students, health care professionals, etc.

To participate:

– Create your #RareIn60
– Post online the week of February 22 (and/or send directly to cjohnstone@cystinosis.org)
– Use #RareIn60
– Let us know you’ve joined the campaign!
