Rare Diseases Day is a special day to draw attention to Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) and other rare diseases.

We want to make more people aware of these conditions and show what it means for families affected by them. It is important because it increases understanding and recognition and shows that we are stronger together!

Strong together in the CdLS community

This event brings us, the CdLS community, together. It gives you and me, along with other families, doctors and researchers, the chance to connect.

We share similar experiences, and that very thing creates a sense of belonging and support, which is very valuable in difficult times.

Greater attention for rare diseases

The day helps raise awareness of rare conditions among researchers and in the wider society.

More awareness can lead to more funding and attention to research on treatments, which can improve the quality of life of CdLS children.

Together, let's make Rare Diseases Day colourful:

  • #RareDiseasesDay2024
  • #ShareYourColors
  • #CdLSawareness

Share your story, wear something eye-catching in the colours of Rare Diseases Day 2024 and show solidarity.
