“Here at Mlynarek Insurance Agencies we are passionate about the grassroots work performed by Immune Deficiency Foundation.
Today, thousands of individuals and families affected by primary immunodeficiency diseases depend on IDF for advocacy, education and empowerment. By joining our IDF Virtual Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency team and/or making a donation to IDF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of the nearly quarter-million Americans who have been diagnosed with a primary immunodeficiency disease.
Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI) are a group of more than 350 rare, chronic disorders in which part of the body’s immune system is missing or functions improperly. While not contagious, these diseases are caused by hereditary or genetic defects, and, although some disorders present at birth or in early childhood, the disorders can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender.
One of the greatest challenges faced by individuals living with PI is finding the right information and resources when they need it. With knowledge and foresight from their personal experience, IDF was founded by families of children with PI and their physicians to help meet those needs. It is with the spirit and energy of this keen perspective that IDF exists today, thriving as an organization dedicated to individuals living with PI.
