Implementation of newborn screening for SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency), a major accomplishment for Immunodeficiency Canada.
”This is a monumental triumph to children born with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) and their families. Newborn screening will detect this problem early before complications develop, and allow for prompt life-saving interventions such as bone marrow transplantation. Usually the diagnosis of SCID is either missed or delayed until the age of 6-12 months of age, after patients suffer from severe and recurrent infections, and sometimes irreversible damage to organs such as the lungs. Newborn screening for SCID will no doubt save many lives and prevent suffering of children.”
Professor Chaim Roifman, MD, FRCPC
Chair and Scientific Director, Immunodeficiency Canada
In 2012, the Canadian Immunodeficiency Society (CI Society), undertook a brand image exercise with patients, volunteers, healthcare professionals, corporate sponsors and donors on how they view the organization.
“I have been fortunate to have healthy children: however my neighbour, a wonderful mother of three, has a child whom was diagnosed with Hyperimmunoblobulin E. as known as Job’s syndrome. Matthew is at Sickkids sometimes weekly for various treatments…even a bee sting can land him in the hospital for days!” Kim Wilson
