Welcome everyone, and thank you for visiting Team Power Gloves' fundraising page!
All who know our son John know that he is an outgoing, energetic, loving, curious boy whose future is as bright as his spirit. He is also a boy who struggles every day with food allergies and the skin problems they cause for him. The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network has provided our family support, medical information and especially recipes that we use all the time to help John. This group brings families like ours together from across the country, so that nobody with food allergies has to go through it alone.
FAAN is a first-class, top-notch organization leading the way in research and advocacy for people with food allergies. I throw my support behind them 100% and hope that you will too!
We have named our walking team "The Power Gloves" after the socks and duct tape that John has worn over his hands to sleep every night since he was a tiny baby. His "power gloves" keep him from scratching his irritated skin (a result of food allergies) unconsciously while he sleeps. As John has grown, the power gloves have become akin to Superman's cape - a special accessory that give John super powers to fight food allergies and eczema.
If you can not join us on September 16th in Chicago for the walk, I hope that you will consider giving a financial gift to FAAN. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts.
With your help we can make great strides in understanding why food allergies exist and affect so many children in our country. Many thanks for your support!! God bless you!
Sincerely, Becky Moore
