Today is World Rare Disease Day. 1 in 10 people are affected by a rare or genetic disease, and yet the support for those (and their families) that are afflicted by a genetic condition is minimal. Today is all about raising awareness for the millions of people worldwide who are affected by their rare genes.
My own son is rare. He has a duplication on his second chromosome which has caused some developmental delays, but also some gifts. He is an amazing child despite (and because of) his struggles. I love my rare boy!
