Emily Zaltsman knew firsthand the challenges of living with a food allergy, and it inspired her to make the world a safer place for others like her.
She not only chose the 2017 San Antonio Food Allergy Heroes Walk as her Bat Mitzvah project, but she also dreamed of dedicating her life to researching food allergies.
Tragically, Emily was killed at the age of 13 by a distracted driver who was texting. Even though Emily is no longer with us, her mission to help the 15 million Americans living with food allergies lives on through the Emily Zaltsman Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room in the U.S. A life-altering and potentially life-threatening disease, food allergy affects 15 million Americans.
Right now, there is no treatment or cure for food allergy... but there is HOPE.
That's why we're raising funds for FARE to help them fulfill their mission to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments. Here’s how you can help:
DONATE NOW! Our goal is to raise as much money as possible in honor of the 15 million Americans with food allergies. Any amount helps, and when you donate, you help FARE to fund food allergy education programs, advocacy and awareness initiatives, and world-class research. Together, we can create a better future for all who are affected by food allergies!
