"Today, I climbed to new heights."

Catherine, living with CVID

"My name is Catherine, I’m 52, and was diagnosed with CVID about 10 years ago.  Before beginning plasma protein therapy, I was sick with multiple serious infections each year and suffered from overwhelming fatigue. Now that I get my weekly infusion of immunoglobulin, I am able to embrace living life again. My energy has improved so much that I can keep up with my son and even try my hand at some new adventures.  

"Because of plasma protein therapies and the generosity of plasma donors, my improved health allows me to enjoy rock climbing, riding my motorcycle, and traveling to foreign countries with friends and family.  Even though I’m in my 50s, I feel better and am more active than I was in my 30s!"
