It's been a great sharing with all the Rare Disease physicians and parents during today Transforming Rare Lives International Conference of 20 Years Retrospect and Prospect on Rare Disease in Taiwan conference. 😘😘😘

The last meeting with Taiwan Foundation for Rare Disorders founders Serena Wu and Prof Chen was 10 years ago in Taipei. I still remember their motivation quote to me :"do it crazily with strong passion and you shall succeed".
Their encouragement I still upheld until today. It's a wonderful day to meet up with them again, thanks Ruth for inviting us for tomorrow sharing session in conjuction with International Conference of 20 Year Retrospect and Prospect on Rare Disease in Taiwan 🙏
天地有正气,杂然赋流形;下则为河岳,上则为日星;于人曰浩然,沛乎塞苍冥。 十年前和台湾罕见疾病基金会创办人陈莉茵及曾敏杰博士在台北的相遇,在执行长冠如的邀约下再次在宝岛相遇。我想是他们给我的鼓励吧,尤其陈姐和博士的那一句话,"敢敢做就是了,不要回头,一定会成功!"。这一句话一直是我的动力。今天是非常的感动,有您真好🙏😊

Singapore has setup a Rare Disease fund with 70 mil seeds fund in July 19. Government making a pledge with 3 dollars for every 1 dollar donation. On top of that, donor can get 250% tax exemption! This is very good model for benchmarking.

Dear friends and colleagues, MLDA would like to share the 13th International symposium on MPS and related diseases, which will be held in Bahia, Brazil from 13 Aug to 17 Aug 2014.

By bringing patients, parents and families together with professionals, the symposium will be able to share information on all aspects of MPS and related disorders. The overall objective is to advance the quality of care and treatment. As well as musculoskeletal disease and MPS, the brain and MPS, and new approaches to treatment, the main topics of the symposium will be pricing and reimbursement. All will be covered in joint sessions attended by doctors, scientists, patients and patients’ families. Separately, doctors and scientists will also attend more detailed sessions on the CNS, bone disease and novel approaches to treatment.

Families will not only have opportunities to meet peers from other countries, but will be able to attend sessions on optimizing care, dealing with clinical issues and surgery in MPS, and ‘living fully with MPS’. Special activities will be organised for young patients and their siblings, who will be accompanied by trained volunteers.

If you are interested to join please contact us.
