We’d also like to take another opportunity to thank Mia and CC’s Cupcake Heaven for raising $1,300 for the MdDS Foundation through a special Rare Disease Day event. You can see photos and details on her Facebook page. These funds will help support much needed research and education efforts.

As June Awareness Month (JAM) approaches, please consider what you can do to help the Foundation advocate for you.
