Rare Disease Day is a difficult subject to tackle. I don’t have any knowledge in this area but I don’t want to be too flippant either as it’s a serious cause, raising awareness and spreading the word (but hopefully not spreading anything else).
So if you’d like to find out more information on this day and what you can do to help, please visit the official website.
If, on the other hand, you’re reading this blog during a few snatched minutes of spare time in an otherwise busy day, why not check out this Giant Microbes Black Death plush – he’s the cutest little fella ever to wipe out 30-60% of Europe’s population. Dawwwww, squishalicious!
P.S. And yes, that is a chlamydia plush at the top. Hardly a rare disease but, gosh darn it, he’s so darn adorable!
