Wisconsin Groups?


Wife and I just found out our 3yr old son is allergic and looking for groups to learn from and discuss. Anybody know of Wisconsin groups or families in Wisconsin??

Thanks in advance.

Welcome jinxed,

I'm across the Wisconsin/Minnesota line in St. Paul, so unfortunately not very close. But I did a quick google and found a group in Wausau that may be kind of in your area. (This is how I found a great support group in the Twin Cities. Don't you love the internet?)


People are always here too to answer questions!

Thanks for the information! We're actually in Appleton (Green Bay) area, but Wausau is drivable for any type of group if near weekend so we'll check on it!

Just curious, what did you search for in Google? Been looking ourselves but can't find many good links. Any help?

I did a search under: "food allergy" support and Wisconsin. Support groups are so worth the drive for!

But if you don't find one, start your own. There weren't any in Minnesota when my son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies. So through internet contact myself and two other families started meeting monthly. The early meeting of three to five parents were so helpful to me. We've since become a nonprofit organization and do statewide advocacy. If I can help any further, please feel free to contact me!
