ABOUT RARE DISEASE FOUNDATION:

Founded in 2008, the Rare Disease Foundation is a non-profit organization on a mission to find cures and treatments through its innovative patient-centric approach to research. To date, the Foundation has funded 464 individual research projects through over $2 million distributed in seed funding, resulting in 14 potential cures delivered in as little as 18 months.

Rare Disease Foundation is proud to have supported over 2,000 rare disease community members through our network of support groups across Canada and in person events (pre-COVID). Since the launch of our Mental Health & Wellness Program in June 2020, as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are honored to have continued assisting community members by delivering over 200 individual counseling sessions with mental health professionals. By connecting and serving patients, caregivers, health care providers, researchers, and supporters, we strive to improve the lives of those living with a rare disease, ultimately providing hope and helping to build a coalition of support.
