"Here are a few facts to consider:

- Most rare diseases are genetic— they are caused by changes to a person’s DNA (mutations) usually present at birth. We all have DNA, and we all have mutations, whether they cause a disease or not depends on where the mutations are and whether they impact our ability to function.

- Rare diseases also can be due to infections, such as Ebola, or in the U.S., malaria, Chagas’ disease or tuberculosis.

- Many types of cancer, such as leukemia and lymphoma, and brain tumors are rare diseases.

- Rare diseases can affect anyone, in any family, anywhere in the world. Sometimes they run in families, but often they occur with no family history."
