Fighting for Co-pay Choice Legislation: Iowa Advocacy Day

Ensuring Affordable Access to Care

As a rare disease community, those living with PI may find it difficult to get the lifesaving treatment they need through affordable rates and flat fee only co-pays. IDF works on the issues of co-pay and affordability on both a Federal and State level, but often the State level is where the issue gets met head-on and why IDF leads the charge for our community in states like Iowa.

IDF Walk for PI: Why Do You Walk?

It’s a simple question, yet it’s one that holds so much meaning: Why do you walk for PI? We like to ask the PI community this occasionally to hear from our community and understand what the walks mean to them. The answers are always inspiring and motivating, and help us remember just how important IDF Walk for PI is to those living with PI.

Remembering David Vetter’s Gallant Life

The incredible story of David Vetter’s life was recently featured in the BBC’s Witness program, including a touching interview with his mother and IDF Board of Trustees member Carol Ann Demaret. 

In 1971, David, affectionately known as the boy in the bubble, was born with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID), one of the most severe types of primary immunodeficiency disease (PI).

“David’s gallant life and death took science on a path that has improved the quality of life now for SCID babies and children born with PI,” said Carol Ann.
