Rare Disease Day 2017
My rare disease is called Mollaret’s Meningitis and is the disease I am raising awareness for on this rare disease day 2017. Mollaret’s Meningitis is a rare, and poorly understood, disease that is believed to be caused by the herpes viruses. It is believed to attack internally, instead of externally, causing viral meningitis instead of external sores. According to a recent patient study conducted by the Mollaret’s Meningitis Association, patient experiences range from rarely having symptoms, to having symptoms of viral meningitis daily. This is why we need more research into this disease.
Please watch the video I created for the Mollaret’s Meningitis Association talking about my experience with Mollaret’s Meningitis, the official rare disease day video, check out the rare disease organizations, and click the link below to learn more about this rare disease.
Thank you for supporting us in raising awareness for rare diseases!
