Call to action:


I'm reaching out to the public, fellow Canadians, all the rare disease advocates, leaders, families and patients on gathering support to having the Canada Government recognize Rare Disease Day federally.


Some of us join in with our international friends to celebrate this day but it's not the law of the land yet.


Can you please sign it. Ask your members, friend and family. We need to have this done federally.


Only Canadians can sign the Petition. Asking everyone to share this post.

Thank you. Carion Fenn

PETITION TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Whereas:

  • 1 in 12 Canadians are affected by a Rare Disease or Disorder;
  • Rare Diseases Impact more people than Aids and cancer combined;
  • 350 Million people globally are fighting rare diseases;
  • 50% of the people affected by rare diseases are children; and


We are honoured that each year the Mayors of Ajax and Pickering along with Mayors across Canada proclaim the last day of February as Rare Disease Day.


We the Citizens of Canada call upon the House of Commons to join others around the world in setting aside the last day of February each year as Rare Disease Day.
