Marc Beer Continues To Fight Rare Diseases Through The Companies He Serves

Marc Beer, CEO of Renovia, recently decided to roll out the company’s new line of products to help ease the pain that patients with pelvic floor disorders have to deal with. He was able to help raise $32 million for the effort and will guide his company as it continues to develop therapeutic and diagnostic products that focus on treating pelvic floor disorders. The Longwood Fund contributed a good chunk of money to the efforts and is happy to be supporting efforts to help treat rare disorders. Marc Beer commented that Renovia was ecstatic to have the Longwood Fund supporting its efforts and expects to be able to change the lives of million of women who suffer from pelvic floor diseases. These kinds of diseases include urinary incontinence, prolapse, rectocele, chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain, anismus, overflow incontinence, and many other conditions that make life uncomfortable and miserable for many.
