This is Gaucher

This is Gaucher is a video campaign to raise awareness of Gaucher disease that highlights the different types of Gaucher and the many faces, ages, ethnicities, languages, and cultures of the people it affects. By sharing your stories and experiences, we hope to empower the entire Gaucher community so they do not feel alone with this disease. Gaucher disease is rare, but it can affect people from every ethnic background. Gaucher doesn’t care what language you speak, what your religion is, or what color your skin is. It can affect anyone and present at any age.

Thank you for sending in your video to participate in this campaign.
