It’s not rare to have a rare disease.

More than 30 million Americans have one of many rare diseases. But since a single rare disease affects fewer than 200,000 people, it can be hard to find specialized advice and care with experience treating one specific rare disease. AmbitCare understands that seizures and developmental delays can be indicators for numerous rare diseases. If you or your loved ones are exhibiting these symptoms, AmbitCare can help you explore possibilities and take the next step.

Rare disease by the numbers:
1 in 10 Americans is living with a rare disease.
There are approximately 7,000 known rare diseases.
80% of rare diseases are genetic in origin.
