The beginning of 2020 has been extremely tough for Chinese people given the unprecedented 2019-nCoV outbreak, especially for medical professionals continually facing high risk of infection and pressure to cure those infected. Given these circumstances, we have decided to hold the "300 Million Thanks" event to show our support to the medical staff fighting 2019-nCoV, as well as rare diseases.
Health care professionals plays a vital role in the majority of rare disease patients' lives. In previous events for Rare Disease Day, we invited doctors and patients to introduce rare diseases and share their life stories with the public, raising awareness and calling on help from the public. However, this year we want to show the patients' strength and support to the medical professionals in China, expressing gratitude for their contribution. We want to express that rare disease patients are not just people in need, but they are also strong and supportive.
We will cooperate with various patient groups and organizations in China to call on rare disease patients to express gratitude to the doctors and nurses by sharing stories or just a simple "thank you" through short videos, articles, and poems. We will post these on social media and let the healthcare professionals, as well as the general public, feel the love and support from the rare disease group. Because love is strong and never "rare".
In addition to Chinese rare disease patients, friends from all over the world are also welcome to participate in our activities on Facebook and Twitter, supporting the medical staff on the front lines. Here is our homepage:
