Re-introducing the KFA Community! You told us that the KFA community was not easy to use on your phone — and we listened. As parents of kids with food allergies, we know that food allergy concerns come up at all times. Being able to connect at any time with other parents managing the same issues is critical! Last week, we updated our community to make it easier and more convenient to access on any device, especially mobile devices! The features that are important to you will be easier...
Cynthia’s daughter, Kate, was just 1 year old when she became covered in hives after eating fresh corn for the first time. Without a clear diagnosis of a food allergy , her parents avoided feeding her corn, not realizing it can also be found in many foods. Kate spent the first years of her childhood with mysterious rashes, nausea, upset stomach and severe abdominal pains every time she ate. When she was 12, Kate almost died from an anaphylactic reaction to an injection containing dextrose, a...
On behalf of all of us at Kids With Food Allergies and those we serve, thank you. Your gifts in 2017 will have a far-reaching impact in the coming year. We are grateful to work with you to make a difference in the lives of the millions of families managing food allergies. You make all of this possible.
Thanks for sharing your story Cynthia! Your strength and ability to search for answers makes you a supermom as well as a great resource to KFA and its constituents !! With respect to food allergies, knowledge is power, but also it can be life saving. Kate must be proud to have you as you are to have her! Awesome .
Kate is SUPER grateful for KFA ... it means that she gets to live a "normal" life without me freaking out all the time. I can't tell you the times that I've raced to the Kids With Food Allergies' online support community to ask a question: "Okay, this happened, so what do I do NOW?" I've never felt alone in this battle since that first post to KFA.
I really want to hear more about your efforts! Could you start a new topic on KFA's Main Support Forum so we could hear more about this? Or you could add to our new discussion topic called, " What do people say when you tell them your family manages food allergies? "
This is my daughter, Abigail Baliles, whom is 10. She manages life threatening food allergies to Eggs, Peanuts & Tree-Nuts. Abigail is so full of life! She loves to Tumble, experiment with her science projects, and she loves to be outdoors! She doesn't let her food allergies get in her way of having a great time either at school or on the tumbling mat! She is always caring her auto injector!
