About Us

Patient Worthy® is an online publication that provides relevant information to rare disease patients, caregivers and advocates alike.

Through education, awareness and a touch of humor, our goal is to inspire those in the rare disease community to tackle their chronic conditions, armed with the knowledge that they are not alone in their fight. We root for new treatment options, support spreading awareness and encourage the occasionally tough conversation.

Here at Patient Worthy, if we are not learning to live with a chronic illness or rare disease ourselves, we are loving or working with someone who is. It is through this perspective, research and our passion for rare disease awareness that we bring you Rare Patient News. Well Done.®

Want to tell us about your “patient worthy” experience?

We share stories, cultivate strong community, provide the latest medical findings, connect people and pioneer production of patient worthy information. Join us, by telling us a little bit about yourself!
