FDA Observes Rare Disease Day

On February 28, 2019, FDA joins the global observance of Rare Disease Day, which was created to raise awareness about the 7,000 known rare diseases, many of which have no treatment. Although each rare disease affects fewer than 200,000 Americans, in total, these illnesses affect an estimated 30 million people in the United States. This year’s Rare Disease Day theme is Bridging Health and Social Care in recognition that rare diseases deeply impact patients, caregivers and their families.

In observance of this day, the Patient Affairs Staff (PAS) wants to highlight several announcements, including the announcement of a public meeting on patient perspectives in rare diseases.

  • Public Meeting on 4/29: FDA will host a public meeting - “Patient Perspectives of the Impact of Rare Diseases: Bridging the Commonalities. The purpose of the meeting is to obtain patients’ and caregivers’ perspectives on the impacts of rare diseases on daily life and to assess commonalities that may help the Agency and medical product developers further understand and advance the development of treatments for rare diseases. The meeting will be held on April 29, 2019 from 1-5 pm at FDA’s White Oak campus. Can’t attend in person? Join by webcast or submit comments to the docket.

  • New Patients Matter video: In our latest video - Patients Matter: Giving Patients A Seat at the Table- we highlight five different kinds of meetings, forums, and committees at which patients, caregivers, and advocates are invited to sit at the table with FDA and share their unique perspectives, experiences, and concerns.

  1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr AKHERE and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: AKHERETEMPLE@gmail.com
