about why background

Fighting for progress.

Living with the physical, emotional, and economic strain of disease is overwhelming. It’s easy to feel hopeless—until you get the right medication and it gets you back to feeling and living the way you want to.
Everyone deserves access to the right treatment that protects their health. Securing that access isn’t always going to be easy. We’re going to have to fight for it, but knowing you’re with us means everything.

The journey to achieve balance.

With work, family, friends, money, health, and self-care, leading a “normal” modern life is already a balancing act. On top of all that, your disease throws you so much more to deal with—nutrition, medication, treatments, comorbidities, insurance coverage, unplanned time off, out-of-pocket costs, and the roller coaster of emotional ups and downs. All of this stacks up and topples over, especially during a flare.

Our Infusion Champions are our heroes: patients like you. They’re working hard to grasp, shift, organize, hold, and ultimately carry all the shapes along the disease management journey. Finding and maintaining balance is how you can break through and live better. We’ve designed the IAF brand and community around this hopeful journey to balance.
Newly Diagnosed

1 – New to This: Newly Diagnosed

A chronic disease diagnosis is life-changing. Right away, there is an overwhelming stack of new shapes (specialists, medications, treatments, etc.) added to your life that you have to learn to balance. It’s a lot to deal with, especially at first.

IAF is a community of people who are balancing similar shapes and can help you figure out how to do the same. Come learn from their experiences and share yours.
Sub-optimal management

2 – Teeter-Totter: Sub-Optimal Management

When your shapes are unbalanced, disease flares are ready to strike. IAF provides resources to help you recognize and navigate imbalances. You can also join in on advocacy efforts that help protect your access to treatment when you need it.
Helping

3 – Leveling Out: Restorative Management

Recovering from a flare is exhausting. It takes time to heal from physical and emotional pain, regain balance, and restore your sense of wellness. IAF is here for you with community support and educational resources to get you back in balance. Lean on us to help you through!
Effective Management

4 – Balance Beaming: Effective Management

With the right treatment and some lifestyle changes, you can carry everything and keep up with your life. It’s going to be hard sometimes.
