The You Cannot Fail Rare Disease podcast series was created so that the Boomer Esiason Foundation can shine a spotlight on other people and organizations in the rare disease community.
In the first episode, Swapna Kakani shares her story about being born with a rare disease, short bowel syndrome and later developing rare PTLD (Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder). Because of her experiences, she founded Alabama Rare, a grassroots coalition to unite the state around the rare disease population. The coalition acts to bring support to individuals and families, and advocate for necessary change.
