Rare Disease Foundation

We Have an Innovative Approach

The Rare Disease Foundation is focused on linking basic science and clinical practice to increase the efficiency of rare disease research. This model is called Translational Care. By incorporating research, astute clinician observation and parental knowledge into the various stages of rare disease research we impact the speed of discovery and the way rare conditions are managed.

"I can’t believe the value this event offers – great food, drinks, entertainment and such a fun evening! "
"Rare Finds is an amazing event to enjoy great food and drinks with a group of friends who care about a very touching cause."
"Honestly, I’m amazed with what this organization can do for people who don’t get a lot of support. This event is a great excuse to get dressed up and have a night out, splurge a little bit and have some fun for a good cause."
"The most stimulating, meaningful, enjoyable event of my year!"
