Weekend reflections: Global Genes Project

There is a big mirror in my "built in 1920" rented hourse. The mirror is handy for reflection photos.

My baby son had a rare genes that cause his death, Campomelic Syndrome is so rare that it happens something like 1 in 5 million, or 5 in 1 million. They don't even know. Even today, last month 3 babies die from it.

I received my Rare Genes sticker all the way from USA. The idea is to stick my sticker in the most interesting place. I went outside, and stuck it at the transformer by the fence, Then I read carefully, It said, please report graffiti and it will be removed. I saw the remains of someone's old notice.

I have symbolically put it on the transformer, and took the photo for blogworld and facebook to read.

This is a heavy thought to reflect on, Ann. How sad.

Rare diseases get left out when it comes to funding research, they need more publicity.

Interesting post. Now you can find free list of diseases.

Yes, we all show our support. It seems to laboratories only interested in money. States are those who will fund research and find solutions.

Rare diseases certainly don't get the publicity and money for research. It's sad how much money this world spends on the military and how little on basic research.
