Pin It Now!

RareShare, an online community for rare diseases, provides an online gathering place for those with diseases that are not common. Profiled at Read Write Web, we find out that RareShare has 600 different communities for rare diseases and they are looking to expand to 1,000 by this fall. The site was launched in May 2008.

The goal of the community is to give patients with the rare diseases support that may not be available where they live. The site eventually hopes to have the doctors who treat these rare diseases join and participate in the community. As for now, the forums are the basic form of communication along with the members profiles.
