Emory was diagnosed with an IgA deficiency at age 5. As a young child, he underwent multiple surgeries related to ear nose and throat problems. After diagnosis, he started receiving IgG infusions on a weekly basis at home. He has struggled with feelings of isolation and had difficulty accepting that the treatment must continue indefinitely.
He loves to play outside, enjoys different sports and is active in Cub Scouts. Academically, he is attending school every day and performing appropriately for his age. Because he has not spent much time around other children with unusual health issues, we are hoping he can be exposed to other children facing similar challenges.
