Rare Disease Day

Today is Rare Disease Day!

NORD is the official US sponsor of Rare Disease Day®, which occurs on the last day of February each year. On Rare Disease Day, millions of patients and their families around the world share their stories to promote awareness of the challenges, hopes and needs of those living with rare diseases.

A disease or disorder is defined as rare in the USA when it affects fewer than 200,000 Americans at any given time. 80% of rare diseases have identified genetic origins whilst others are the result of infections (bacterial or viral), allergies and environmental causes, or are degenerative and proliferative. 50% of rare diseases affect children.

Over 6000 rare diseases are characterised by a broad diversity of disorders and symptoms that vary not only from disease to disease but also from patient to patient suffering from the same disease.

Relatively common symptoms can hide underlying rare diseases leading to misdiagnosis and delaying treatment. Quintessentially disabling, the patients quality of life is affected by the lack or loss of autonomy due to the chronic, progressive, degenerative, and frequently life-threatening aspects of the disease.

The fact that there are often no existing effective cures adds to the high level of pain and suffering endured by patients and their families. Doctors are taught, "when you hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras." This is why those with rare diseases often refer to themselves as zebras and wear zebra print awareness pins.

Start With Hello

One of the students at UCI sent in a picture of their pin from Start With Hello week, earlier this month, where they invited some local 7th graders to discuss social isolation and it's effects. Many socially isolated students end up suffering from depression, struggle with learning or social development, and sometimes take their pain out on themselves or others.

The Start With Hello campaign educates teachers and students on how to prevent social isolation. BECAUSE EVERYONE NEEDS A FRIEND, AND WE SHOULD ALL BE KIND TO OTHERS! And so today, on Stand Up to Bullying Day, it feels appropriate to share the picture they sent us. Isolation and bullying can cause many of the same consequences, so be good to one another. Stand Up to bullies, and be a friend to someone without one.

World Social Justice Day

Today is World Social Justice Day!

Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

For the United Nations, the pursuit of social justice for all is at the core of its global mission to promote development and human dignity. The adoption by the International Labour Organization of the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization is just one recent example of the UN system’s commitment to social justice. The Declaration focuses on guaranteeing fair outcomes for all through employment, social protection, social dialogue, and fundamental principles and rights at work.

The General Assembly proclaimed February 20 as World Day of Social Justice in 2007, inviting Member States to devote the day to promoting national activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the World Summit for Social Development and the twenty-fourth session of the General Assembly. Observance of World Day of Social Justice should support efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.

National Donor Day

It's National Donor Day!

Observed each year on February 14th, National Donor Day (also known as National Organ Donor Day) is a day to increase awareness about organ donation and the lives that can be saved. In the United States, there are more than 120,000 people waiting for a life-saving organ donation.

National Donor Day focuses on five different types of donations: Organs, Tissues, Marrow, Platelets, and Blood. Many nonprofit health organizations sponsor blood and marrow drives and organ/tissue sign-ups across the nation. Approximately every two seconds, there is someone in the U.S. who needs blood, which translates to the need for over 41,000 daily donations.

Look into becoming a donor. Visit organdonor.gov for more information on organ donation.

World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day!

Saturday, February 4th is World Cancer Day, when organizations and individuals around the world unite to raise awareness about cancer and work to make it a global health priority. Every year more than 8 million people die from cancer worldwide.

One of the most visible events marking the occasion in the United States will be in New York, where the Empire State Building will be lit blue and orange for the seventh year in a row. The colors are those of the Union for International Cancer Control, which organizes World Cancer Day.

Around the world, communities will hold festivals, walks, seminars, public information campaigns and other events to raise awareness and educate people on how to fight cancer through screening and early detection, through healthy eating and physical activity, by quitting smoking, and by urging public officials to make cancer issues a priority.

To everyone who has been touched by cancer, let your experience motivate you to take every precaution to ensure your future health and happiness.

To everyone we have lost to cancer, wish you were here.
