The story of an 11 year old girl who survived

The holidays can often prove to be a challenging time for most of us with food allergies. Especially when it comes to dinner parties and such.

Please listen to this young girls’ story and share. It is a great story of survival and strength and shows that it doesn’t take much for some of us with life-threatening allergies to react severely.

During this holiday season, be sure to ask lots of questions and when in doubt, go without. If you are not sure about the food that will be served, eat before the party, and only snack on a few things you feel safe with and are not worried about cross-contamination.
