Our family was able to attend our first Twins game thanks to the Anaphylaxis and Food Allergy Association. We appreciate having such a wonderful program available for our son who is allergic to peanuts and has asthma. If he has peanuts his lungs will collapse, food allergies are no joke. So I just want to thank everyone who volunteers to help children who have food allergies. It's nice to feel "Normal" at an event and enjoy instead of feeling worried that your child isn't safe and where is the closest hospital.
Our family enjoys the safe events that AFAA facilitates for those with food allergies such as Peanut Free Halloween events @ MOA, Twins games, Timberwolves games, etc.
In addition to these events, AFAA does so much more. They have workshops with expert speakers, lobby at the state and national level for food allergy interests and they educate the public via their booth at the Minnesota State Fair and also the booth they have at the state school nurses conference.
We feel very lucky to have such a wonderful advocacy organization available and consider them a very worthy recipient of your support.
