What does ’rare diseases’ mean?
Rare diseases mainly (circa 50-75 %) genetically determined congenital anomalies – especially difficult and takes long time to find the adequate diagnosis. On the way to find accurate diagnosis it’s difficult to find the path to reach the appropriate doctor, clinic, centre, university, expert etc. How often occurs the rare disease? 1 in 2 000 people suffer rare disease. All over Hungary 700-800 000 persons live with rare disease, while this number in Europe is about 30 million.
The road to the correct diagnosis in case of any kind of rare disease is as hard as the adventure of Eszter and István has during this race event at the North Pole.
We are looking for 330 supporters!
What does this 330 km have to do with rare diseases?” Till now the Hungarian Lifebelt Helpline and Information Centre could help about 330 persons per year to find the correct diagnosis, expert, social support or the correct educational institution, which is almost the same number of the length of the race ahead Eszter and István.
Please join to Orsolya Bujka, the European water polo champion and Mohamed Aida world champion and Olympian as a supporter of the Polar race and maintain together the HUFERDIS service for 2017!
Just please sponsor 1 km of the Norway Polar race with a 10 euro/kilometre offer and be part of István Őry and Eszter Szigetvári’s challenge and your name going to be written on the flag that Eszter and István going to pin on the North Pole.

About HUFERDIS and Lifebelt Helpline and Information Centre:
Since 2006 the Hungarian Federation of People with Rare and Congenital Diseases (HUFERDIS) has been involved in solving many issues concerning the rare disease treatment and service. HUFERDIS established „Lifebelt” Information Centre and Helpline for Rare Disease Patients. By setting up the Information Centre we are able to help for patients with rare disease and their families, for the professionals who work in this field. Our target is to give validated, understandable and reliable information on time for those people and for their environment to access adequate medical, social, educational service. This can change the quality of their life within a short time! To be able to continue the work would need 3300 EURO. This “life-changing” service aims to help 330 Hungarian families a year!

A Mentöőv Központról
Évente átlagosan 330 család fordul segítségért a Ritka és Veleszületett Rendellenességgel Élők Országos Szövetsége által fenntartott Mentőöv Információs Központhoz. Tudd meg hogyan segítünk!
Bolyongás a semmi közepén, éjjel is a szabad ég alatt, úttalan utakon. Fantasztikusan izgalmas kalandot jelent ez a hatnapos kutyaszános túra. Azokon is segíteni szeretnénk vele, akik kevésbé szerencsések!
