[ARCHIVED] Proclamation: National Primary Immuno Deficiencies Diseases Awareness

Primary imuno defiencies diseases are chronic, disabling diseases in which underlying genetic defects in the immune system lead the body to more complicated and frequent infections. Primary imuno deficiencies diseases can affect any part of the body, including the blood, blood vessels, muscles, nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, endocrine glands, multiple-organ systems and can be life-threatening. Because these deficiencies are difficult to diagnose, treatment is often delayed, resulting in irreparable organ damage and unnecessary suffering. The IDF (Immune Deficency Foundation) is a coalition focused on promoting increased education, awareness and research into all aspects and designated May 2014 as National Primary Immuno Deficiencies Diseases Awareness Month to help educate the public about Primary Immuno Deficiencies and the need for research funding, accurate diagnosis and effective treatments.
