How I use the money you generously donate

"Hi, thank you for supporting my search for the specific immune cells which begin an allergic reaction. Research is a process of observation and elimination. $800 buys enough antibody for me to run two experiments which will confirm or eliminate a specific effector. It will bring us that much closer to new treatments or even a cure for allergic reactions." Dr Lisa Connor.
