The Vision for Tomorrow Foundation (VFT) celebrates Rare Disease Day – a globally-coordinated movement working towards equity in social opportunity, healthcare and access to diagnosis and therapies for people living with a rare disease.
VFT focuses on two rare diseases that cause low vision from birth – aniridia and albinism. Aniridia affects approximately one in 60,000 births and one out of 17,000 people have some form of albinism. VFT supports families living with these genetic diseases and funds research to better understand these rare conditions.
VFT is proud to participate in the Global Chain of Lights Challenge to help light up the world to raise awareness for everyone living with a rare disease. Share a photo to your own and/or VFT social media pages and help light up the world in support of those with a rare disease.
Rare Disease Day is observed every year on 28 February (or 29 in leap years)—the rarest day of the year.
