The staff at CSL Plasma in Lawton, OK warmly welcomed Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) volunteer Valerie Jordan-Dinwiddie April 12 as part of IDF’s Plasma Center Partners Program and to promote Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Awareness Month.
Through the program, IDF volunteers, who are either patients or family members living with primary immunodeficiency diseases, visit centers and share their stories with plasma center staff and donors.
Valerie says, “The whole visit was wonderful. The staff was great, and they had a zebra cake too. I hope I did justice to primary immunodeficiency diseases in telling my story. It was great to be connected and see how the process works as I've never been into a plasma center… they couldn't have made me feel more welcomed and I am so fortunate to have had the experience.”
