When my son was one year old he was diagnosed with multiple life threatening anaphylactic food allergies. After viewing a 5 minute video on the use of an Epi-pen in the allergist's office, my husband and I were sent on our way with no instructions on how to safely feed a child with food allergies. We were familiar with the problem because our nephew had similar allergies but we didn't know how to manage it ourselves. We soon became very familiar with FARE and used the website to find information on safe foods and where to find them, education regarding how to deal with food allergies from other parents and used the food allergy action plan for our son's daycare and school. We soon realized that we had far more support than the parents who went before us, such as my sister, due to the amazing efforts of this organization to educate the general public about food allergies so that our dealings with teachers and other parents have most often been met with compassion and understanding. This was not so 10 years earlier for my sister who fought tooth and nail with her son's school for his right to be kept safe. We are so thankful for FARE an amazing organization.
