Julia Stays Safe with Epinephrine Close by at Disney World

Active princesses with food and drug allergies stay extra careful when they are on the go. Meet Julia, our September #WhereInTheWorldIsMyEpinephrine winner. She is allergic to peanut, tree nut, penicillin and azithromycin. Happily, the kindergartner recently passed oral food challenges for egg and milk.

 

"We are diligent about keeping Julia's epinephrine auto-injectors with her at all times - it goes where we go: on the bus to school, on field trips, to cheerleading practice and even to Disney World!" said her mom, Michelle. "I was so happy to find Kids With Food Allergies as a source of education and support."

Where are you taking your epinephrine or your child's epinephrine this month? Harvest festivals, football games, parades? Show us 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– to the movies, on vacation, family gatherings and trick or treating.
