My name is Cam and I am severely allergic to peanuts, gluten, eggs, and shellfish. I have anaphylactic reactions if I am exposed to these foods. Anaphylaxis means I can have difficulty breathing and other life threatening symptoms. I carry an epipen with me everywhere I go - to preschool, to the playground, on play dates with my friends, to my grandparents' house - just in case I get sick.
I am raising funds for FARE because I want to help them fulfill their mission to improve the quality of life and the health of children with food allergies - like myself and my baby brother, Kyle. I hope to they will be able to develop new treatments and maybe even a cure so I can eat anything I want and not feel sad about being excluded from activities. Will you please help me?
My goal is to raise as much money as possible for FARE over time. 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 me and my baby brother - and everyone who is affected by food allergies!
