The Breath of Life Fund is dedicated to the loving memory of Dina LaVigna, a very special person who suffered from a disease called Primary Immunodeficiency (PI). The mission of the Fund is to improve the care and comfort of patients with Primary Immunodeficiency by improving the patient experience in hospitals and provide forums for social contact between patients, families and healthcare workers.
The Fund will place its highest priority to efforts related to Dina's concerns for the quality of life for children with Primary Immunodeficiencies. The Fund will endeavor to maintain an infusion room environment that children and adolescents will find warm, entertaining and inviting.
While pursuing its mission, the Fund will work closely with the Jeffrey Modell Foundation and hospital administrations to elevate hospital Immunology Departments into centers of excellence.
The Fund will seek to maintain a budget and source of money that will enable on-going contributions and efforts that support the Fund's mission.
When possible, the Fund will seek to obtain donations to assist in carrying out its mission.
All administration resources and expenses are supported by volunteer work, the Jeffrey Modell Foundation and donations specified for the purpose. The Fund's goal is that 100% of donations to the Fund will go directly towards patient related activities.
