“It’s a miracle you’re still alive.”
April 20, 2017
High school student and common variable immune deficiency (CVID) patient, Baylee Gregory, is an avid golfer and soccer player who hopes to one day play those sports in college. That didn’t seem possible years ago when a doctor commented, “It’s a miracle you’re still alive.”
Now that she’s been diagnosed and is treating her primary immunodeficiency, her mom, Annette, says, “She’s going to live a life that she wants to live and not let things stand in her way.” Baylee and her mom shared their story with BioBlog at the start of World PI Week 2017.
BAYLEE: I always had sinus infections. I always had ear problems, stomach issues. Family trips I would always be the one sick. I’d go to the doctor and they would just tell me that it was allergies or take an antibiotic, it’s another sinus infection, it’ll go away.
