Team Valentino ·
We have been affected with food allergies ever since my son was around 3 weeks old and do all we can to support awareness & research, all the while praying for a cure. We hope everyone does their part in educating the population and expressing the importance not only of avoidance, but compassion. Feel free to join our team in this year's FAAN Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Walk Tampa Bay coming November. "Together we CAN make a difference" Blessings!

I know Matthew would love to be the face that wins a prize and/or be the child that represents food allergies. Matthew has been dealing with children bullying him at school with his food allergy. This would really lift him up and realize there is support for him. Praying for one day there is a cure to food allergies. No one should ever have to worry or fear when they eat something. God Bless everyone that has a food allergy.
