I am 26 years old and I have Arginase Deficiency. My piece shows that often when someone is diagnosed with a rare disease, their world feels as if it is crumbling and falling down around them. But often as a result, it creates a purpose for them or their family and friends. It can lead to a positive and hopeful path for their lives. Having a rare disease myself has lead to me doing many things that can help many people with rare diseases.
