Mediaplanet recently announced the launch of the February 2020 edition of “Rare Diseases." This campaign will showcase the innovative work being done within rare diseases research, diagnostics, and will highlight what industry experts and patients see as potential future therapies for those living with rare diseases.

Shaquem Griffin, the linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, is the cover story of the print edition. Shaquem Griffin was born with a rare disease called amniotic band syndrome which is a rare condition caused by strands of the amniotic sac that separate and entangle digits, limbs, or other parts of the fetus. It’s believed that amniotic band syndrome occurs when the inner membrane ruptures, or tears, without injury to the outer membrane. Shaquem speaks to the challenges he faced but with the support of his family and friends, and perseverance despite all odds he made it to the NFL and is now the fastest linebacker in the league.
