Coats' Disease Awareness Day takes place each year on August 17 to shine a light on this rare disease. It is a day for all Coats' patients, parents, families, friends, and physicians to spread the word about this disease, promote early diagnosis, and fund research to find a cure.
There is no cure for Coats' Disease yet and many cases go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Raising awareness may lead to an earlier diagnosis and prompt treatment so that a child's vision may be saved. Funding research is critical to identifying improved treatments and to finding a cure for Coats' Disease.
Thank you for supporting this important day!
