Rare Disease Day 2014 – Please help raise political awareness.

Rare Disease UK (http://www.raredisease.org.uk/) is using Rare Disease Day to raise political awareness and to ask politicians to support the UK Strategy for Rare Diseases. RD-UK has produced a set of template letters for you to adapt. There is room in the letter to inform them TSC, so please do take the opportunity to do so.  We would be interested in hearing if you get a response from your politician.
