My Message

I am Jyoti Parmar and the mom of three kids, 2 of whom have life threatening food allergies. 

We have been managing our kids' multiple life threatening food allergies for the last 12 years - since our son Sahil had his first reaction to peanut butter residue. And, just under 8 years ago, our youngest daughter Jaya was diagnosed with allergies to milk, egg and nuts.   

We are constantly vigilant to avoid an allergic reaction yet accidental ingestion has occurred and we’ve had to administer epinephrine to Jaya several times over the years. Thankfully she survived her reactions.  
However, not everyone does.
In 2015, Thornhill teenager Andrea Mariano died due to an allergic reaction after sipping a drink contaminated with one of her allergens (peanut, dairy).  She was 18 years old.
 
Research is being done but deaths by food allergy continue to occur.
 
Most recently 15 year old Alexi Ryann Stafford of Florida died when she mistakenly ate a peanut butter Chips Ahoy cookie on June 25, 2018. Despite receiving two injections of epinephrine, she did not survive.
We are continuing our fundraising efforts this year.
 The 3rd Annual Walk for Andrea will be on Sunday September 30th, 2018 at 10 am at Milne Park, Markham, Ontario.  
All funds raised go to the Sick Kids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis program to find a cure for life threatening food allergies. 
Please join our effort by donating to the Walk for Andrea! 
All donations of $20 and more will receive a charitable donation receipt.  
Many thanks to those of you who have donated already!
With gratitude,
Jyoti, Peter, Sahil, Anika and Jaya
