Members of the Board for the Rare Disease Foundation in Canada come from all walks of life but share one important drive; a desire to advocate for patients with a rare disease diagnosis. Some of our Board Members have children who have been diagnosed with a rare disease, while others have walked the journey of being a patient with a rare condition.
