The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF), founded in 1980, is the national non-profit patient organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of persons with Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) through advocacy, education and research. There are approximately 250,000 people who are diagnosed with PI in the U.S., and thousands more go undetected.
Did you know that because of IDF Walk for PI we were able to establish the IDF Research Grant? This program is fully funded by dollars raised through IDF Walk for PI. In fact, this past fall we awarded the first grant to Sonia Sharma, PhD of La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology to help support clinical research of PI. A second round of grants will be awarded in the first half of 2017.
Together, we are making a difference. Together, we can change the future for people with PI.
