Rare Disease Day is the last day of February every year. It’s a day to share our stories and spread awareness on the reality of living with rare diseases in an effort to expand research and support. Take a look at their website where you can read about the day, the campaign, and people’s stories. If you or a loved one has a rare disease, you can submit your story to their website. Each year, we “show our stripes” to advocate for rare diseases. With its distinctive stripes, the zebra is the official symbol of rare diseases in the U.S. Learn about the ways you can get involved next year.
