Community for Rare Disease
A glimpse into the world of rare diseases and the unsung heroes that are pushing for medical breakthroughs.
Rare is a feature-length documentary currently in production
As filmmakers, we are always looking for stories that connect with people, fuels awareness, and helps bring about social and political change. Last year, when we met Jessica Klein-Foglio, we were so inspired by her story that we turned on the camera and started filming her journey. Little did we know that we were entering into a world that affected so many people’s lives, yet knowledge or options were slim to none.
Rare diseases touch the lives of every community throughout the world, and yet little is known about the history of their origins and research progress today. This film will explore the key moments of the history of rare diseases and the continuing shift in the debate over those able to impact new medical discoveries.

Rare diseases affect more people than cancer and aids combined, making this one of the most significant health challenges of our time.
With your help, we hope to finish and release this film and push the conversation onto a worldwide stage.
