Sever Immunodeficiency

What it is

A rare and deadly mutation of the immune system, making the patient vulnerable to sickness.

Science behind it

There are two cells, T-cells and B-cells, that warn the immune system when a virus is invading. This way, the system can prepare and gather its strength for fighting off the intruder.

Living with it

This is a hereditary disease that will reveal itself during the first months of one's life. There are no cures that have been discovered, so putting up with the chronic cough, ear and sinus infections, and rashes that come with it isn't an option.
