Immune Deficiency Foundation meeting

We attended an Immune Deficiency Foundation meeting today. Jilda's condition falls under that umbrella and this conference was amazing.

Some of the speakers were researchers and their talks were WAY over our heads, but there were others who put the "hay down so the goats could get at it," as the old saying goes.

We learned a great deal today. Some of the stories of the attendees were heartbreaking, but others were encouraging.

If you have a loved one who seems to catch every cold, flu, or other infection that comes around, you might want to encourage them to get tested. If they find their immune systems are compromised, I would highly recommend they contact the IDF. What they've shared with Jilda has already improved her life great deal.

I hope you all have a remarkable Sunday.
