for the Food Allergy Awareness Walk on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013!
"Raising 2 children is no easy task especially when one of your children has food allergies. Living with a toddler that has food allergies is a traumatic experience especially if you don't know how to feed them or make sure the food they eat is safe. We spent several nights in the ER with our daughter because we were un-educated about her food allergies. The AFAA has given my family the much needed help and direction in dealing with our 2 year old daughter who is allergic to 6 different things."
