A fund dedicated to supporting
Rare Disease Families
addressing the financial needs of disenfranchised rare disease communities
The Rare Families Financial Assistance Fund (Rare Families FAF) is a financial assistance program designed in collaboration with the Rare Advocacy Movement (RAM)'s "Our Lives Matter" Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (OLM DEI) Initiative.
Purpose: to help alleviate some of the financial burdens that disenfranchised rare disease families face on a regular basis.
Options: You have the choice of supporting Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Families (in honor of Tim Gillen), single parent rare disease families, or any disenfranchised rare disease family.
Your support contributes to a financial life-line for rare disease families facing eviction, hunger, and other life threatening situations because of financial stress exacerbated by issues like the pandemic, institutional oppression, the evolving needs of their children diagnosed with a rare condition, etc.
