As Rare Disease Day is approaching, CSL Behring is in touch with leaders of patient advocacy groups to explain why rare conditions deserve attention and recognition as a global health concern. Click here to read what Lisa Butler, the Executive Director of GBS|CIDP Foundation, and other nonprofits have to say.

You can feel as if no one in the world would ever understand what you might be going through.
