As mother day approaches, one of our TREND Community members reminded us today that rare disease can have a huge impact on the mother/child relationship. She asked some very powerful questions and we would like to extend them to all of our rare disease groups.
If you are a child living with a rare disease, how has the disease affected your relationship with your mother?
If you are a parent of a child with a rare disease, how do you think your child’s diagnosis has shaped your relationship with him/her?
If you have other children, how do you think rare disease has impacted their relationship with you?
In a few words how has living with rare disease impacted your family?
Please feel free to share any other thoughts relevant to this topic.
