Do you have a friend or loved one suffering from RP? Dave Bammert, a Director and President of the Relapsing Polychondritis Foundation and Race for RP, knows firsthand what that is like. When his longtime friend, Nancy Linn, developed this devastating condition, Dave saw how much she struggled and how difficult it was to get a correct diagnosis and effective treatment.
Today, David is a champion for this rare condition, spearheading an effort towards greater awareness and information about RP. He is optimistic about the effect of current research. Of the recent conference, he said,
“To see a room full of researchers communicating and collaborating on sharing ideas and identifying research in items that they have discovered during their research time and just communicating with each other across disciplines, it’s overwhelming because it shows us that the path we’re on is having some successes.”
