My 2 year old son was vomiting for 13 days straight. In the hospital they just kept saying that he had a bad virus. After being admitted and running a battery of test the G.I. doctor told us that my son had eosiniphilic esophagitis. My wife, my in - laws, my parents and myself had no clue what he was talking about. We ran home and started googling things and became even more upset and angry. My 2 year old son would never eat like a normal person and we knew nothing about this disease. Through our googling we came across APFED and quickly started to find some real answers. The foundation has been amazing for us and in turn we had a fund raiser this past March and we donated over $45,000 to the foundation. We are determined to fight this disease and one day I want my son to eat like a little boy or girl that can eat normal foods.

Ways to make it better...
