Magnolia Mayor Todd Kana presented a Proclamation to make Rare disease day official in Magnolia on February 29th. Riley Lee, the Texas State Ambassador for Rare Disease with NORD, and Michelle Epps founder of Kanz 4 Kidz were there to accept the Proclamation.  Rare diseases affect approximately 30 million Americans or 1 in 10 people. 

Approximately 30% of children with these debilitating diseases will not live to see their 5th birthday. There are over 7,000 types of rare diseases, with more being found every day.
