Come Celebrate WPIW
WPIW – World Primary Immunodeficiency Week
Primary immunodeficiency diseases are a group of more than 200 rare, chronic disorders in which part of the body’s immune system is missing or functions improperly. While not contagious, these diseases are caused by hereditary or genetic defects and can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Many people with primary immunodeficiency can live healthy, productive lives with early diagnosis and appropriate therapies.

SAPI’s Goal for this event and overall mission: SAPI is a local patient organization serving the needs of Northern California patients living with Primary Immunodeficiency. Our mission has 3 areas of focus. First is to raise awareness about the essential unsuspecting need to test, diagnose & treat PI through local events that create a conversation about PI and strengthen the relationships of our local PI community. Second is to provide PI networking opportunities for the emotional support of patients. Third is to create funding for local PI research.
SAPI participates in the Packard Summer Scamper. We hosted a booth, answering questions about immune deficiencies. Lynn ran the 5k race, and Dr. Butte ran the 10k race.
Dr. Butte spoke at the second SAPI-sponsored event, an Ask and Immunologist Day held at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford Auditorium.
He spoke about adult immune deficiencies (e.g,. CVID). His slides are here.
SAPI organized its first event, attended by many children and adults with PI. We rented a few lanes in at Bel-Mateo Bowl, just off El Camino Real in San Mateo, CA.
We want to run some local fundraising events (such as a charity auction, golf tournament, beer or wine tasting) to raise funds for primary immunodeficiency research and treatment. Please contact us if you would like to help.
We are interested in setting up a “Kids’ day” event in the Bay Area for children with PI. If you’re interested in helping set this event up, please contact us.
