Our October #WhereInTheWorldIsMyEpinephrine family shows that you really can go anywhere when you have epinephrine! Meet Kyzer, 10, who lives and travels the U.S. aboard an RV full time.
Kyzer is a home-schooled fifth-grader allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. He carries his epinephrine auto-injectors in an insulated bag. He also has environmental allergies and asthma.
"Traveling the country has shown him that he can do anything even with all his allergies," said his mom, Alisha. "We have been to many places, have eaten at many great restaurants and have found the most amazing nut-free bakeries too!"
The family wins their choice of $400 worth of Certified asthma & allergy friendly™ products.
There are just two more chances to win this year! Show us in November and December where you carry epinephrine by joining #WhereInTheWorldIsMyEpinephrine!
Add your photo to our campaign and the next winner could be you! (You do not need to show your auto-injectors - just send us a photo of where you have taken them with you.)
Epinephrine is the only treatment for anaphylaxis (anna-fih-LACK-sis). Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that must be treated immediately. Studies show many people leave their emergency medicine behind, so take yours with you everywhere– holiday shopping, parties, football games and Thanksgiving parades!
