It's Rare Disease Day 2012 on Wednesday 29th February, and I am almost as excited as I was for National Pituitary Awareness Month in October. The Pituitary Foundation is supporting Rare Disease UK, and you can find out more about the events on offer and how to get involved by clicking here.
Also, check out this list of 21 rare diseases compiled by the Huffington Post to mark last year's Rare Disease Day. Ok, so some of the conditions they list are really symptoms rather than illnesses in and of themselves, but clearly they've gone for the most sensationalist conditions out there, and more power to them. First illness on the list? Acromegaly/gigantism. Whoop whoop!
