Welcome to the Jeffrey Modell Foundation
Vicki and Fred Modell established the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JMF) in 1987, in memory of their son Jeffrey, who died at the age of fifteen, from complications of Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) - a genetic condition that is chronic, serious, and often fatal. JMF is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to early diagnosis, meaningful treatments and, ultimately, cures through research, physician education, public awareness, advocacy, patient support and newborn screening.
  • To make a world of difference in the lives of patients with Primary Immunodeficiency.
  • To affirm our absolute commitment to clinical and basic research in order to better understand and treat Primary Immunodeficiencies.
  • To serve as a national and international source for the dissemination of information and education into the diagnosis and treatment of genetic immunodeficiencies.
  • To serve as a tireless, compassionate advocate on behalf of patients and families to assure their access to excellent and comprehensive care.
  • To promote public awareness of Primary Immunodeficiency diseases through programs involving our lawmakers as well as lay, scientific, and medical communities.
  • To affirm our commitment to turn pain, despair and suffering of immunodeficient children and adults into comfort and hope.
