· The Impact for Families ·
In 2021 SCID, Angels for Life provided 14 families with scholarships to help them get through difficult hospitalizations, treatments and life events. Here are just a few examples of Family Scholarship Recipients:
A SCID patient who already had a number of ongoing challenges was diagnosed in 2021 with a form of cancer. He required treatment out of his home state.
A family found SCID Angels just this year when going through transplant with their 2nd SCID child. This treatment required juggling 2 SCID babies who were only 14 months apart, while being treated at a hospital outside their home state.
Another family turned to SCID Angels for help while moving their family to a new state. They expected to have to sleep in their car with their SCID child during the move. The drive would take more than one day and they didn’t have the funds available to stay in a clean hotel.
These are just a few of the stories we hear on a daily basis from families with a SCID child. This is why we need your help, so that no family is turned away in a time of need.
