Happy Rare Disease Day!

Hey everybody. It’s Matt from Situation Positive, and I want to wish you all a Happy Rare Diseases Day! Did you know that across the world, there are more than 300 million people living with a rare disease? And unlike MS, which I have and is the most common neurological disorder, a lot of people living with rare diseases don’t have the same kind of opportunities that diseases like MS have that have such a large population base.

They don’t have the strength in numbers, the strength in organization, or even the research dollars to carry forward their mission and try to get closer to treatments and cures. So I want to take this time and say that everyone with a rare disease, we are here for you.
