As an18-month-old, I was rushed to the emergency room. It was later discovered that I have severe food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, and sesame. I have spent all of my life being careful about what I eat, reading every ingredient label, carrying epinephrine emergency medication, and educating others about what it means to have severe food allergies.
People are often surprised to learn that every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the E.R. in the United States. Food allergies can be life-threatening, and the disease impacts 32 million Americans!
Right now, there is no cure for food allergies... but there is HOPE.
That's why I'm raising funds for FARE to help them fulfill their mission to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments. Here’s how you can help:
DONATE NOW! My Mitzvah Project goal is to raise as much money as possible in honor of the 5.6 million children under age 18 with food allergies. That's one in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom!
Any amount helps, and when you donate, you help FARE to fund food allergy education programs, advocacy and awareness initiatives, and world-class research. Together, we can create a better future for all who are affected by food allergies!
Thank you so much.
