By raising your hand, you can show your support for the 30 million Americans with rare diseases.
Simply click here and Lundbeck will donate $1 to rare disease research (up to $10,000 for the campaign). The donations will be added to a general research fund managed by NORD. The campaign will run through the month of February in honor of Rare Disease Day on Feb. 28th.
This is the 8th annual Raise Your Hand campaign. In 2016, Raise Your Hand provided donations that NORD awarded to research grants for the study of Malonic Aciduria and Stiff Person Syndrome. Learn more about NORD’s research grant program here.
The 2017 Raise Your Hand campaign is particularly meaningful for the rare disease community, as the Rare Disease Day 2017 theme is research. Research brings hope to people living with rare diseases. You can also get involved with research with these suggested opportunities.
Thank you for supporting research! Please help us spread the word by sharing this blog post with your friends and family! Alone we are rare. Together we are strong.®
