    Ethan and Me with Geraldine Renton

    Listen to RareShare's latest podcast with Geraldine Renton, book author and Irish mother of a Hunter Syndrome child. In this episode, Geraldine tells of her family's journey navigating the challenges of a rare disease that led to the writing of her book Ethan and Me. Hear about their courageous battle with adversity, as they learned of the genetic enzyme deficiency behind the disease and faced its unrelenting consequences, leading to Ethan's passing in late 2020. From learning about Ethan's diagnosis, to locating support and treatments, to just being a mom, the podcast paints a broad perspective about confronting a rare disease. This very candid and detailed account, which includes many lighter enduring moments about life with Ethan, is heartwarming, informative and inspirational.  
     
    From the book Ethan and Me:  "You're now in a secret world. You'll see things you never imagined... yet you'll also witness so many everyday miracles. You'll treasure things most wouldn't think twice about. You'll become an advocate, an educator, a specialist and a therapist, but most of all you'll be Mom or Dad to the most wonderful child."

    Don’t Sell Yourself Short: Having a Career after a Rare Disease Diagnosis

    No one expects to get a rare disease diagnosis in their mid 20s at the start of a budding career, then get fired for spending too much time away getting treatment, but that’s exactly what happened to Candace Lerman in 2014. Now, almost 6 years later, inspired by her own quest for effective treatment, Candace has retrained as a lawyer and is fighting for new treatment approvals on Capitol Hill. Candace joins us to chat about her experience as a rare disease patient, how she went from losing her job, to succeeding at law school, and about the work she is doing to assist nonprofits in the rare disease space.
