I am the mother of a three year old that has a severe allergy to peanuts. We have the added complication of being expatriates.
Because of our emloyment, we move countries every few years, and we also travel back and forth to Canada (to see the relatives). I have found living abroad with a child who has a fatal allergy challenging, but definitely with some benefits.

Does anyone out there know of a support group for expats or travellers with allergies? Anyone interested in setting one up with me?
