Elena Escalante, delegate of the Rare Diseases Federation (Feder) in Madrid, has praised the role that Queen Letizia has played in the development of the federation and in the dissemination of these pathologies and ensures that "thanks to her work, her involvement, her support many doors have been opened to us."
Escalante, in an interview with Servimedia on the occasion of the commemoration of Rare Disease Day on February 28, said that "the Queen is discreet and humble and does a wonderful job in the federation." There is a before and after in the history of Feder's 18 years. When she started to support us things changed, she has opened many doors for us"
The delegate of Feder also stressed that "like the federation, the Queen is clear that research and education comes first, and in that sense has played a very important role."http://www.servimedia.es/...ias/Detalle.aspx?n=660764
