Rare Disease Day - Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Advocate for OM Research during February!

Join us in advocating for OM research this month as we lead up to Rare Disease Day. Held on the last day of February every year, this day is set aside to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and the impact on patients' lives. 

Tuesday marks the 10th Rare Disease Day. This year's theme is RESEARCH which is a source of hope for all people living with a rare disease. 

What Can You Do?

* Organize a Fundraiser in your community, church, neighborhood, school, or workplace.
* Crunched for time? Start an online personal fundraiser using Crowdrise.
* Donate to OMF. OMF is committed to supporting ground-breaking research. The first 10 donations of $25 or more during the month of February will receive a free "See A Cure" t-shirt.  
* Send your "Rare Disease" story to holly@ocuarlmelanoma.org. The first 10 submissions will receive a free "See A Cure" t-shirt.
* Spread awareness by posting your story to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
