“The Balancing Act” on Lifetime TV Seeks Partners for New Series “Roulette Wheel of Rare and Genetic Diseases”

Series will provide audience with treatment information, help educate and empower patients, their families, caregivers and the medical community

(Pompano Beach, FL – June 18, 2012) Did you know that rare diseases affect 1 in 10 Americans? BrandStar Entertainment’s popular morning show “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime TV is searching for content partners for their new series “Roulette Wheel of Rare and Genetic Diseases.” The 6-part mini-series is scheduled to launch in October 2012 and air through Q2 2013.

The goal of the series is to raise awareness of genetic conditions, rare diseases and treatments while helping to inspire Americans to take a more active role in getting to know and understand their genes.

A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 people.  Based on these statistics, there are about 6,800 diseases that fall into this category, according to the National Institute of Health. The “Roulette Wheel of Rare and Genetic Diseases” series will go in-depth with coverage on Cushing’s Syndrome, Hereditary Angioedema (HAE), Hunter Syndrome, Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) Deficiency, Prader-Willi Syndrome, and more.

“As a mother of a child with an undiagnosed rare disease, I know first-hand the expense and the heartache of the search for an answer, or even a name to what is attacking my child’s body.  My hope is that our stories will help connect the dots,” says Carri Levy, Senior Associate Producer and visionary behind the series.

“Because of the breadth and scope of the number of identified rare diseases, the patient community remains the biggest advocates here. This series will provide our audience with advocacy awareness and treatment information, helping to educate and empower patients, their families, caregivers and the medical community,” continues Levy.
