As part of Valley Fever Awareness Month, Senator Jean Fuller introduced Rob and Wendy Purdie; and Kathleen Hickerson, Valley Fever survivor, to the California State Senate. Rob is currently President of the Valley Fever Americas Foundation and survived one of the most severe cases of Valley Fever which will require lifelong treatment. The Valley Fever Americas Foundation was created over 20 years ago to raise funds for vaccine research and finding a cure.
Also, as part of Valley Fever Awareness Month, this Saturday, August 11th, the foundation will host their 7th Annual Valley Fever Walk in Bakersfield. This event helps raise Valley Fever Awareness and builds support for a cure.
