Immunodeficiency Canada brings 10 Warning Signs every parent should know to life with the help of families affected by PI
We are very grateful to Fred and Vicki Modell of the Jeffrey Modell Foundation who shared these 10 Warning Signs with us to help Canadians learn about Primary Immunodeficiency.
The Jeffrey Modell Foundation is a US public charity devoted to early and precise diagnosis, meaningful treatments, and ultimately, cures – through clinical and basic research, physician education, patient support, advocacy, public awareness and newborn screening.
“Our first project, in the early 1990’s was to develop the 10 Warning Signs of Primary Immunodeficiency with the American Red Cross and our newly established Medical Advisory Board. Since then, the 10 Warning Signs have been translated into more than 50 languages and have been distributed throughout the world.” says Vicki Modell, Jeffrey Modell Foundation Jeffrey Modell Foundation
The 10 Warning Signs brought to life is in thanks to the hard work and effort of so many people; Kathilee, Tim and the team at The Blend, , the children and adults describing their symptoms in relation to each of the 10 warning signs and Shelley Montreuil for the original music performed by the band, Yo Mama, with portions of the song “Let It Ride” and “Kiss You Because I Can”. Immunodeficiency Canada is grateful to everyone who contributed.
For World PI Week, April 22 – 29, 2016, Cieslok Media, jumped on board to help bring mass awareness of the 10 Warning Signs to the Toronto Public through their large format digital billboard on Dundas Square in Toronto. It is a privilege to be able to make a positive difference for Immunodeficiency Canada by reaching the masses and creating awareness through our digital displays at Yonge-Dundas Square”, says Jörg Cieslok, President & CEO of Cieslok Media.
