Hi everyone, I am the mother of a 3 y.o. who is allergic to soy, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and eggs. Our list of food allergies continues to grow as she recently had an anaphylactic reaction to hummus, which sent us to the ER. I am feeling so frustrated and scared, two emotions that I do not like.

I want to get involved in fundraising for research and advocacy efforts and for raising awareness to this increasing issue. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions or want to join forces to get some funds raised and get the message out about food allergies? I know there are a lot of exciting things going on out there in regards to this, so any information or guidance would be helpful!
