Longtime Immune Deficiency Foundation volunteer Towma Rastad and her children Alec, 15, and Allissa, 13, devote time and energy to promoting awareness about primary immunodeficiency diseases around their town of Westborough, MA. Their story was recently featured in their local paper, the Community Advocate. Click here to read the full story.

Towma has served as an IDF volunteer since Alec was a toddler, helping at patient meetings, providing peer support and much more.

Now her children have followed in her footsteps. Alec was selected as a member of the IDF Teen and Young Adult Council and will travel to Cincinnati, OH August 4-5 for IDF Teen Escape weekend. Council members help other teens understand and embrace living with primary immunodeficiency diseases. Alec and Allissa are both active with IDF and within their community, helping to increase understanding about primary immunodeficiency diseases.

Thank you Rastad family for your dedication and continued efforts on behalf of IDF!
