Friday Is Rare Disease Day

Posted: Updated:

Friday was International Rare Disease Day.

Montana's Commissioner of Securities and Insurance Monica Lindeen said about one in ten Montanans suffer from these rare diseases.

Organizations from across the globe team up to raise awareness about many rare diseases, this year focusing on care.

They chose this theme because patients with rare diseases have a range of care now and want to make sure everyone has access to the same level of care.

Currently some people are able to get treatment for their diseases, while other diseases have no treatment options.

This year more than 80 countries hosted events raising awareness to rare diseases.

Rare Disease Day events happen every year around the globe on the last day of February.
