FAAM's highlight for April is the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT), who recently recognized us as an educational support group. Thank you FAACT!
Hi! My name is Evan and I am twelve years old. I have a severe airborne peanut and tree nut allergy. For me, transitioning from elementary school to middle school was harder than I expected. My elementary school was very good about my allergy and the people there really watched out for me. When I began middle school, I quickly realized I would have to be very aware of my surroundings in order to keep myself safe.
Food for Thought is the blog for the Food Allergy Alliance of the MidSouth. FAAM's mission is to provide food allergy support, education, advocacy, fellowship & fun for Memphis, TN and surrounding areas.
If you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately and follow up with a physician.
