World CD Day

World Castleman Disease Day is on July 23rd!

What is World Castleman Disease Day?

World Castleman Disease Day is celebrated each year on July 23rd. It is an amazing opportunity for Castleman disease advocates worldwide–from patients, loved ones, physicians, and researchers–to come together in the fight against Castleman disease to continue to support patients currently living with Castleman disease and to remember and honor those patients who we have lost.  World CD Day will continue to be the one day a year for patients, loved ones, physicians, and researchers across the world to come together and unite in the fight against this disease, a day where we can all show solidarity and our commitment to taking this disease down!
