Congratulations to our third #morethanfoodallergies 2019 winner! 

Dylan, 7, and Logan, 4, need their family's help to manage food allergies, asthma and eczema, but they do it with confidence and winning smiles.

"They overcome their allergies by not letting it get them down," says their mom, Ruby. "They play, they laugh, and they live their best lives even if they can’t have that piece of cake."

Congratulations to our second #morethanfoodallergies 2019 winner! 

Rising high school senior Kylie Rogers discovered she had a severe allergy to peanuts four years ago, but she doesn't let it steal her joy, even when it can prove to be a hurdle to leap.

"She has navigated her way through high school with this allergy, and it is not always easy," says her mom Gail Rogers. "High school is a very social time for teens, and Kylie has to often say no to events, and restaurants that are not safe for her.  However, she has continued to face this obstacle with confidence. She has used her allergy to educate friends, family, teachers, and coaches on the inclusion and acceptance of people with special circumstances. She participates and excels in several sports, has leadership roles in student government and is an honor roll student. Kylie will be a senior in high school this year, so we are spending the summer touring college campuses."

Congratulations to our first #morethanfoodallergies 2019 winner! 

Mason's family's challenges started at his birth. It took several months before he was diagnosed as having food allergies and FPIES. 

Kristal, Mason's mom, says, "I say there are a lot of challenges. However, we have been blessed to have a family willing to learn about his needs and actually do something about it." She adds, "This is our way of life, our "normal". It has been a learning curve for us. We have found that communication and explanation are big when you have someone with dietary restrictions. You have to be their advocate, especially when they are so young."
