What is it like to be a parent of a rare disease child? Do you find yourself charting a world of unknowns? Your role is not limited to being a full-time parent. You are an advocate who is not only studying your child’s rare disease, but also contacting dozens geneticists or researchers to learn more.
The responsibility of caring for a child with a rare disease is much larger than the outside eye understands. When your child’s condition is rare, there may be no established community that understands you.
