BENEFITING: Immune Deficiency Foundation
I am Primary Immune Deficient and it took 33 years for me to get a diagnosis. During that 33 years I suffered many many infections including 6 cases of pneumonia, countless ear infections, sinus infections, eye infections, skin rashes/infections covering large parts of my body, and a lot more kind of gross stuff no one should have to endure.
In the process I lost significant amounts of lung function and hearing.
I got off pretty lucky compared to many other Primary Immune Deficient Patients and there are a LOT of them still out there that have not been diagnosed and are still suffering.
The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) is the organization that I support to help Primary Immune Deficient patients get proper diagnosis and treatment beacuse of their 30 year history dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of persons with primary immunodeficiency diseases through advocacy, education and research.
I would like everyone who is affected by these diseases to get diagnosed, HOPEFULLY BEFORE they suffer too long, like I did.
I support IDF with my time and money and I hope that you will help me in my efforts to prevent others from suffering the way that I did for 33 years.
I am going to match dollar for dollar all contributions to this fundraiser up to the goal of $500. That would be a grand total of $1,000 to IDF if my friends can contribute a total of $500.
Please help me reach my goal and help Stop Unnecessary Suffering.
Thank you for your support!!!!
