Hoodies to Help Conquer Cocci

Please join us by participating in our newest fundraising campaign by purchasing a Valley Fever awareness hoodie.  All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to research or to raising awareness of the impact the disease can have on our lives.

“We welcome your assistance in lessening the impact of this horrible disease by the purchase of a hoodie and wearing it where people can see and learn the symptoms shown on the back. Thank you for caring and best wishes to all who are fighting this disease.”

More Valley Fever Cases Diagnosed in Winter Months

Though Valley Fever is commonly understood to be a dry-weather phenomenon, more cases are diagnosed August-December than any other time of year.  This is partially because Valley Fever can take weeks to show symptoms and be properly diagnosed.
