When you’re sick and go to your doctor, you expect that you can be helped. You expect that your doctor will figure out what’s wrong, and know what to do about it. Most of the time, that’s true.
But not always.
If you’re unfortunate enough to have a condition or disease that isn’t well-known or hasn’t had much research, you might be out of luck. And you might be in serious trouble, as many of the more unusual diseases are life-threatening. When your doctor doesn’t know what to do… what then?
That’s where the Rare Disease Foundation comes in. Their mission is to ensure that sufferers of uncommon diseases get the same chance at a cure as everyone else. Educating doctors and other health providers, encouraging and funding research into non-mainstream conditions, and making sure that nobody is left without help just because their problem isn’t an everyday occurrence is what they are all about.
And this week, it’s what we are all about.
Donate. You know the deal… show ‘em that bronies care. And as always, matching funds of one dollar per five, up to a hundred in matching funds, will be squeezed out of Caerdwyn.
Get squeezin’, Martha, we got us a disease to cure!
