Transfusion fund help

I just discovered I have what is called Primary Immune Deficiency  Disorder (PIDD).  This means my body doesn't produce the antibodies that it needs to fight off infections.  Over the last year or so over and over I've gotten sick and even when I got treatment it took me ages to feel better. It's meant time away from work, time away from my family, and more stress than I can say.

As as a result I will need immunoglobin transfusions as my numbers were less than half of What they should be. The transfusions will be a trial in themselves, and it is wonderful knowing that my friends and family are already rallying around me to support me. 

The treatments are very aggressive. They will take a lot out of me. They require time off work, and will not be completely covered by my insurance.
Once I start treatment, it takes some time for the body to adjust, however, these will allow me to return to some semblance of normalcy, no longer plagued by chronic infections. 

If you could, it would be greatly appreciated if you can contribute. Anything you can spare makes a huge difference. Every little bit helps as we all know. 

You have all been such a great source of comfort and help for me and my family during this whole traumatic unfolding of events. Having a diagnosis is half the battle, having all of you by my side means I can win it. 

I love you all. 

Jen
