Mastocytosis. The disease that changed Mommy Nicol and her baby’s life forever.
Born a healthy and happy baby, the lives of Mom Nicol and her hubby changed when their son was diagnosed with Cutaneous Mastocytosis when he was just 12 weeks old. Mastocytosis is a condition that occurs when mast cells accumulate in the skin and/or internal organs such as the liver, spleen, bone marrow, and small intestines. They share their story to support other parents. 28 February is Disease Awareness Day to raise awareness for rare diseases and improve access to treatments and medical representation for individuals with rare and genetic diseases in their families.
