Read on for more.

Rare Disease Day
28 February is Rare Disease Day. It’s a day when we join together worldwide to raise awareness about what it is like to live with a rare health condition.

The theme for 2023 is Show Your Colours. Many people living with rare diseases speak of feeling isolated. Many have never met or heard of another person with their condition. Sharing personal stories is an important way to help people with rare diseases feel connected. It can also help the wider community to understand better what it is like to live with a rare disease.

For Rare Disease Day we are sharing stories from our community. If you would like to participate, please help share these stories. And if you have a personal story you'd like to share, we would love to hear from you.
