IDF Started with You

The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) started with volunteers. In 1980 Marcia Boyle co-founded IDF, the national nonprofit patient organization dedicated to people with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI) after her son was diagnosed with a PI. Following his diagnosis, Marcia soon realized and was deeply concerned to find there were no educational materials and no advocacy groups for people with PI like her son John.

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.
