World PI Week expresses deepest condolences on the passing of Vicki Modell

As World PI Week, we are deeply saddened by the passing of Vicki Modell, co-founder of the Jeffrey Modell Foundation, a stalwart advocate for patients worldwide affected by primary immunodeficiency.

Vicki Modell, alongside her husband Fred, founded the Jeffrey Modell Foundation in memory of their son, Jeffrey, who lost his life to primary immunodeficiency. Vicki’s passion, dedication, and unyielding spirit were instrumental in propelling the foundation to the forefront of the fight against primary immunodeficiency.

The World Primary Immunodeficiency Campaign extends its deepest condolences to Vicki’s family and the Jeffrey Modell Foundation. Her wisdom and dedication to the Primary Immunodeficiency community will forever be remembered. We will keep Vicki’s memory alive through our work, ensuring her impact remains a guiding light in all we do.

Together, we will do something about it and continue raising awareness about primary immunodeficiency.
