Michael, Age 14, Keeps Epinephrine Close at Hand #WhereInTheWorldIsMyEpinephrine

Kids With Food Allergies is pleased to introduce you to the second winner of our #WhereInTheWorldIsMyEpinephrine campaign.



His mom, Patrice, submitted his photo on our KFA Community Clips page. She writes:


“Michael is 14 and this picture was taken in our backyard this winter. He figured his Epipens would remain warm in the inside pocket of his heavy coat while he walks around the neighborhood admiring the beauty of a snow filled wonderland. It is not often that we see a lot of snow in Oklahoma.”


Michael and his family win $400 in Certified asthma and allergy friendly™ products.


The next winner could be you! Show us your epinephrine on your journeys this year! Studies show many people leave their emergency medicine behind, so take yours with you – to the playground, to sporting events, to the movies, anywhere you go. Remember, epinephrine is the only treatment for anaphylaxis (anna-fih-LACK-sis). Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that must be treated immediately.

Check out our contest announcement for more information.
