Last year’s event net nearly $30,000 for the foundation.  That money was used to provide numerous travel and childcare scholarships to SCID families who attended the Immune Deficiency Foundation National Conference in New Orleans.  It also funded our online SCID Family Scholarship Program which provides financial assistance to SCID families nationwide who are currently going through treatment.  Over 13 family scholarship’s were awarded in 2015 alone.

Our campaign to have newborn screening for SCID implemented in all 50 states is still moving full speed ahead. Tremendous progress has been made and there are currently 34 states screening babies at birth for SCID. That’s nine more states screening than were screening last year at this time!  The 34 states currently screening are: (in alphabetical order) Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma,  Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.  SCID Angels wont stop until ALL 50 states and US Territories are screening for SCID!

With the rising number of states now screening, that means there has also been an increase in the number of babies being identified at birth.  As a result, there’s been a significant increase in the number of requests for support and financial assistance from SCID Angels. Please help us continue our mission to provide assistance to those SCID families in need by supporting SCID Family Scholarship Program which is directly funded by the profits from our charity fundraiser on Monday, March 14, 2016.
