      So many, like hundreds. For example have you heard of Li-Fraumeni Syndrome, or pheochromocytoma, or agammaglobulinemia, or harlequin ichthyosis? There are so many diseases and only a small number of them get researched but I think that if anyone gets a disease, even if it’s rare, there should be a treatment.
