The Bayshore Foundation for Empowered Living, the charitable arm of Bayshore HealthCare, has donated $5,000 to the Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders (CORD). The donation was made in partnership with Bayshore Specialty Rx to support individuals in Canada who are affected by rare diseases.

According to CORD, one in 12 Canadians are diagnosed with a rare disorder in their lifetime. And approximately three million Canadians and their families face debilitating diseases that severely impact their lives. Although each specific rare condition affects only a small number of individuals, scientific understanding and clinical expertise may be limited and fragmented across the country.

Bayshore Specialty Rx provides a complete ecosystem of healthcare professionals, clinics, nurses, pharmacies, and specialists to support patients and healthcare professionals to simplify the treatment journey for patients. From expertise at the bedside to complex reimbursement navigation and collection of real-world data and advanced analytics, the Bayshore team reduces the burden on patients, their families and healthcare providers while adding to the body of knowledge about therapies and their impact.

CORD is delighted to receive this generous donation from the Bayshore Foundation. These funds will aid in the development of a rare disease center of excellence and support our continued efforts to implement a rare disease strategy with the government.
