Please help me support Immune Deficiency Foundation by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Immune Deficiency Foundation's great cause!
If you're considering supporting me by making a gift, might I suggest one of the following?
$12 for the 12 grams of gammaglobulin that I infuse every week to replace the antibodies that my body doesn't produce.
$20.01 for the year that I was diagnosed with a primary immunodeficiency (PI) disease.
$55 for the percentage of total blood volume made up by plasma; donated plasma is processed to become the product I infuse.
$130 for the number of plasma donations required to treat me for one year.
$450 for the more than 450+ different primary immunodeficiency diseases described thus far.
$650 for the number of gammaglobulin infusions I've received since August 2001
If you make a gift will not only will you be supporting all of the programs and services that IDF provides for free to the PI community, but you'll also be advancing the opportunities for PI research. Because of what was raised through the IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency in past years, the IDF Board of Trustees established a research fund that will fund clinical, translational research projects aimed at directly impacting people with PI. My clinical immunologist at Texas Children's Hospital has been a recipient of this funding and is studying the gut microbiome and PI - a topic near and dear to my heart, well gut!
Thank you so much for your consideration and for your support of the PI community!
