Our Partner Cure Rare Disease and the Fight Against DMD
Updated on June 11th, 2019
Over 7,000 rare diseases have been identified and nearly 1 in 10 Americans may have a rare disease. Our mission to create awareness about those diseases that stem from genetic disorders took a giant leap forward recently, as we announced our partnership with Cure Rare Disease.
Cure Rare Disease (CRD) was founded by Rich Horgan, a Blavatnik scholar at Harvard University. Rich’s family has been afflicted by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy across three generations, including his younger brother.
CRD is advancing the science to develop a therapeutic treatment for the disease, along with several other rare diseases.
Here is a powerful video telling their story.
