On my page you will see a pic of my son Jake. Jake was diagnosed with food allergies at 18 mnths. Jake has a sever allergy to Tree Nuts & Bananas. (He also has a slight allergy to dog saliva & play dough. ) Jakey's allergies are something that is NEW to us, and the family. He is the only one in our family that has any sort of Nut allergy. If any of you have a NUT allergy you know that it is an extremely serious & dangerous allergy. We carry a child's Epi Pen with us wherever we go, just in case.
Help Me Reach My Goal!
I recently accepted the challenge to participate in the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network’s (FAAN’s) Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward A Cure. The event will raise funds to find a cure for food allergy and to educate others. FAAN’s mission is to raise public awareness, to provide advocacy and education, and to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.
