Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) has declared the entire month of May as Food Allergy Action Month, which is an extension of Food Allergy Awareness Week, which begins on May 11. The goal is “to go beyond raising awareness in order to inspire action so that we can improve understanding of the disease, advance the search for a cure, create safer environments and help people live well with food allergies.” In celebration of this event FARE has issued a challenge in the form of a calendar. Each day contains an action that you can take to support food allergy awareness, with the goal to do something every day.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to stick with everyday but I will do my best to raise awareness for food allergies in general and relate it to FPIES when I can. I hope to do this in a series of short and sweet posts, and encourage everyone to check in every day to learn something more about food allergies and FPIES. I’ll also continue to tell the story of E’s FPIES Journey and share yummy recipes as well as our FPIES victories.
Today’s action is to share FARE’s Food Allergy Awareness Infographic:
And here is an awareness card created by the FPIES Foundation:
I encourage you to share this information with your friends and family and get involved yourself. THANK YOU!
