Synopsis

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD) there are an estimated 20 million people affected by rare diseases. 95% of Rare diseases do not have approved treatment. This dramatic short film sheds light on the struggles families face when confronted with a lesser known disease. The results are often fatal when trying to pinpoint an illness that is not well known as there is not always the medical expertise available for a speedy diagnosis. I Am Rare is a story about a family’s true to life experience of their son’s rare diagnosis, their struggles, and their resilience.

'I am Rare' is mainly taking place in a hospital setting. We are teaming up with local medical facilities who support the awareness we would like to bring.
Our drama will have our experiences acted out as they have unfolded combined with Ashton's POV shots of what he has lived through.
