Every day I wear a bracelet with my nephew’s name on it to remind me of my motivation and also my blessings. He passed away weeks before his first birthday. The underlying issue was never found but in retrospect, we had many ‘we should have known’ moments.”

My 10-year-old son suffers from a disease that little is known about because it is so rare. My personal experience motivates me to come to work at Alexion every day so I can help other families affected by a rare disease.” 

Gaetano - Administrative Assistant and father of a child living with a rare disease - Italy

My daughter began experiencing symptoms at 9 months old and we did not get a diagnosis until she was 4. My first thought was, ‘How am I going to manage a child with a disease that most physicians had limited or no knowledge of?’ It has been a long journey with a lot of heartbreak, but after we received help from a case manager, I decided I wanted to give back the hope and support that I was given. I became a case manager at Alexion and feel honored to be able to give back given my personal journey.”
