Do you know that there are 300 million people worldwide who are living with a rare disease, a number equivalent to the population of the world’s third largest country? Since 2008, a global patient-led campaign has been held each year to raise awareness for the group and hopes to make a difference. Indeed, it is essential to spread the message: Rare is Many.
On February 28th, the Rare Disease Day unites numerous people worldwide to show solidarity with the people diagnosed with rare diseases and their close ones.
Particularly, it is estimated that there are 200 rare cancers, among which Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). The Oncidium foundation therefore wishes to raise awareness about this rare disease and show its support to the neuroendocrine cancer community. Learn more about NETs and radiotheranostics options.
The Oncidium foundation also wants to emphasize on the core value of this international day: working towards more equitable access to diagnosis, treatment, care and social opportunity. Our commitment involves supporting the development of radiotheranostics for cancer care and enhancing global access to people living with cancer, regardless of origin and financial situation.
