How are Rare Diseases Treated? An Advocate Conversation

Living with rare diseases is exceptionally challenging. After years of misdiagnosis, patients finally arrive at a diagnosis, and many times, there’s not even a treatment. We always say, “patients are looking for trials, and researchers are looking for patients.” Nowhere is that truer than in the rare diseases community.
