Rare Disease Day falls on a Sunday this year. It is celebrated each year on February 28. Although a rare disease impacts us, we must remember,” we are first humans.” A fellow columnist living with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) does an amazing job on this topic. Despite our disease, we share commonalities.
He writes, “On this upcoming Rare Disease Day, I encourage everyone to think about someone you know who is rare not because of the disease they have, but because of the unique person they are.”
I encourage each of you to celebrate your uniqueness despite your rare disease. I agree that we, ourselves and others, forget that we, too, are human. In what ways are you unique?
So true,@colleensteele. This column really resonated with me. I am sure many others will also find this resonates with them.
I enjoy learning about our members; they are like PHamily. Each one is unique, and as they share more, we learn more about each of them. I love that I have the opportunity to be among such amazing people. I love this close-knit feel.
