Share a Photo to Show How Your Child Is More Than Food Allergies

 

Join Our More Than Food Allergies Photo Contest

Nearly 6 million children and more than 26 million adults in the U.S. have food allergies.

May 12-18, 2019 is Food Allergy Awareness Week. This year, our focus is on raising awareness about how food allergies are more than just a physical condition and they impact every aspect of life. But it doesn't have to define your child.

Dana-Kagan-1-cropMost of the time, Dana Kagan can be found doing things most 13-year-olds like to do – playing softball, acting in school plays, staying up late to finish homework and hanging out with friends. 

She also manages food allergies to eggs, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, bananas, kiwi, avocados and carrots. 

Dana has had several severe allergic reactions where she had to use her epinephrine auto-injectors and go to the emergency room. The experiences have been stressful. But Dana decided to use her experiences to help others. 

To teach other children about food allergies, she developed a food allergy game. She shares her knowledge with students across her school district. To date, she has taught 1,500 students about food allergies. She also trains people on how to use epinephrine auto-injectors and raises money for food allergy awareness.


Together, we can work to overcome the challenges and burdens of food allergies – in ways both big and small.
