International Gaucher Day at CENTOGENE

Since 2014, International Gaucher Day (IGD) has been held annually on the first of October. Bringing together physicians, patient organizations, researchers, medical companies, and of course, Gaucher patients from around the world, IGD raises awareness and brings support to the Gaucher Community.


Gaucher doesn’t just affect those living with the disease, but their friends, family, and the people they interact with every day. The love and support of the community is what makes it strong. Here at CENTOGENE we want to shine a spotlight on you and the incredible people in the community and showcase your stories.

What Does Gaucher Mean to You – Tell Us Your Story

Gaucher looks different for everyone, and we would love to hear what Gaucher means to you. Simply record a video of yourself telling your story (it doesn’t need to be long – 30 to 60 seconds is great!), and share it with us. We think it’s important that the world hears what you have to say. To do this, please upload it via the submission form.
