This event is scheduled to commemorate the celebration of World Rare Disease Day, which takes place on the last day in February each year.
Did you know:
- There are over 7,000 rare diseases in the world
- Rare disease affects 1 in 10 Americans
- More than 50% of rare diseases affect children
- 30% of children diagnosed with rare and genetic disorders don't live to see their 3rd birthday
During this complicated time, families struggle to obtain expensive medical and therapy equipment designed to provide safety to these children and to improve the quality of their lives. The Little Miss Hannah Foundation provides this equipment at no cost to the families to enhance the quality of life of their children. Meet some of our special kids!
