Dear members and supporters,
Life With Challenges is already planning the Rare Disease Day, 28th of February, 2014.
On 28th of February, organize a press conference for media – discussion with patients/families/doctors/ health institutions under the motto of the Rare Disease Day 2014 – let’s Join Together for Better Care!, as we are in preparation of the National Strategy for rare diseases.
Also we will have sponsors/donors/supporters/volunteer event as we are celebrating 5 years of the existence of the organization. We will award certificates to all people/companies/organizations/institutions that supported us through the years.
We will have a cocktail afterwards – participants gathering to discuss future improvements in treatment and care in order to improve quality of life, and to share experience on what does it mean to live with a rare disease.
Day before rare disease day (27th of February) we will organize education events for students from the Medicine and Pharmacy Faculty with cooperation with the University Children Clinic Skopje.
