Today is World Rare Disease Day. Why is this significant? According to the Global Genes Project, there are approximately 7,000 known rare diseases, 80 percent of which are genetic, half affecting children. As many as 30 million Americans, or one in 10, has been diagnosed with a rare disease, and a whopping 95 percent of those have no FDA-approved drug treatment. Only 15 percent of rare diseases have organizations or foundations providing support or doing research, making today an awareness day of particular importance.
