Sample blurb: 

The Castleman Disease Collaborative Network (CDCN) – a global network of physicians, researchers, patients, and loved ones that is accelerating research and treatment for Castleman disease – has launched a new website at www.castlemannetwork.org. The CDCN is taking an innovative approach to tackle this rare and deadly hematologic inflammatory disorder that involves global collaboration, investments in high-impact research, patient engagement, and strategic partnerships. Check out their website at www.castlemannetwork.org #CastlemanWarrior #RareDisease @cdcn2

Here are some tidbits about the CDCN:

What is it? A collaborative network of patients, loved ones, physicians, and researchers dedicated to accelerating research and treatment for Castleman disease - a deadly, hyper-inflammatory hematologic disorder.

Who is behind it? A team of physicians, researchers, MD and MBA students, patients, and their loved ones have joined together to lead the CDCN.  David Fajgenbaum and Frits van Rhee co-founded the CDCN along with CARE co-founders, Greg and Charlyn Pacheco.

What can I find at www.castlemannetwork.org? For patients/loved ones, we provide up-to-date information on Castleman disease, tools to connect with others, and opportunities to fight back against Castleman disease by funding essential research projects. For physicians/researchers, we provide up-to-date research findings, a platform to connect with others, and strategic grants. For others, we provide interesting content about research acceleration and information about applying the CDCN's principles to other diseases and initiatives.

Why create the CDCN and this website? Patients are dying as they faithfully wait for medical research progress to be made, but it moves far too slowly, inefficiently, and randomly. We're building collaborative partnerships, identifying strategic priorities, connecting all stakeholders, and jockeying research forward to save lives!
