SORT BY Relevancy
Mike and Joyce speak with Gloria in Ireland. She shares her family's adventure in achieving a diagnosis of her daughter first for a brain tumor, and then for a rare syndrome, von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) which has implications for other kinds of tumors as well.
We learn how her persistence was essential in getting to a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment for her daughter, who is now doing very well. There are lessons for all of us in trusting our own instincts, and in knowing what is normal and what is unusual in your own family members. The doctors bring their knowledge of the science and of sorting out what diagnosis might be right. The patient and the family bring their description of the symptoms the sequence of events, and the pattern of when the symptoms are better or worse. It is only through this partnership that we can get to a diagnosis, especially of a rare disease.
Dr. Ilene Sussman, Executive Director of the VHL Alliance, based in Boston, Massachusetts, speaks with Mike and Joyce about the celebration of Rare Disease Day being co-sponsored by the Alliance and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio), at the Massachusetts State House in Boston on February 28, 2014, 11-12 AM.
The VHL Alliance is dedicated to research, education, and support to improve diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for those affected by Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL).
von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) is a genetic form of cancer. VHL patients battle a series of tumors throughout their lives. The VHL gene is involved in many other forms of cancer. Curing VHL is one step closer to curing cancer!
The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio) is an association of more than 600 biotechnology companies, universities, academic institutions and others dedicated to advancing cutting edge research. MassBio is the leading advocate for Massachusetts’ world premier life sciences cluster. “We drive innovation by creating a forum for the biotechnology community to come together, educating the public and policy makers, influencing public policy and advancing the economic interests of individual companies, as well as the sector as a whole.”
The Rare Disease Day event will take place Friday, February 28, 2014, 11-12 in the morning, in Nurse’s Hall at the Massachusetts State House, on Beacon Hill in Boston. For more details, see http://www.massbio.org/events/calendar/2305-rare_disease_day/event_detail

Patricia Weltin, Founder and CEO of Rare Disease United, will speak with Mike and Joyce on Thursday, January 23.
Patty's two daughters have a rare disease called "Hypermelanosis of Ito" (HI). She is not looking to educate you about HI. Instead she wants you to know that nearly 25% of the United States is affected, directly or indirectly, by some rare disease. Each individual rare disease may be rare (affecting less than 1% of the population), but the experience of having a rare disease is not rare at all. And each individual or family with a rare disease encounters the same hurdles over and over, throughout the country and the world:
We all struggle:
<li>to achieve a diagnosis</li>
<li>to find a doctor who know anything about our rare disease</li>
<li>to find an appropriate treatment for the condition</li>
<li>to find others who understand and can provide coaching</li>
<li>to encourage drug development to alleviate or cure our disease.</li>
Rare Disease United focuses on raising awareness among the general public in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and helping to facilitate the gathering of people affected by rare diseases so that they can support one another.
Come listen to the great plans Patty has for celebrating Rare Disease Day at the end of February 2014, and learning how you can join together with this energetic group and with other such groups worldwide.
