Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives. The International WAGR Syndrome Association is pleased to take part in Rare Disease Day by spreading awareness and celebrating all WAGR zebras around the world!
