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 Mid-South. 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.
