AccountingDepartment.com Announces Support Of Rare Disease Day 2014

AccountingDepartment.com, long time supporter and fund raiser for the Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation, announced support of Rare Disease Day on February 28, 2014.

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AccountingDepartment.com announced its support for Rare Disease Day, an annual event that focuses on raising awareness for patients and families living with rare diseases. Held on the last day of February each year, Rare Disease Day is a global event meant to draw attention to diseases that otherwise might not get enough recognition or funding due to smaller numbers of afflicted persons. However, while these diseases are rare, those suffering from them share a common struggle.

AccountingDepartment.com's Philanthropic Mission
Supporting rare disease research isn't new for AccountingDepartment.com. A long time supporter of Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC), a rare neurological disease affecting less than 800 people worldwide, AccountingDepartment.com donates a portion of its revenue to Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation every year. AHC Foundation is committed to funding research and support for patients living with AHC. This rare disease is especially important to AccountingDepartment.com because its Co-Founder Bill Gerber's son Sean Gerber is one of the children living with AHC.

Through ongoing support for research, AccountingDepartment.com hopes it can help people like Sean, a sweet, loving boy who was diagnosed with AHC just before his first birthday, after suffering mysterious and terrifying seizure-like symptoms within days of his birth. By supporting Rare Disease Day, AccountingDepartment.com joins a worldwide movement to bring rare but important diseases from the fringes to the forefront of medical research.

Supporting The AHC Clinic At Vanderbilt University
AHC Foundation recently announced a major advancement in patient care with the opening of the AHC Clinic at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University. Vanderbilt University is the site of many major medical advancements and research projects on the topic of AHC, spearheaded by Kevin C. Ess, MD, PhD and Director of the AHC clinic. Funded by the AHC Foundation, they have led significant research on the ATP1A3 gene and optimized care for AHC patients. AccountingDepartment.com is committed to helping raise funds and advancing the Foundation's mission.
