My Message

I am participating in the 3rd Annual Walk for Andrea in support of SickKids Foundation. My daughter, Adaline, went into anaphylaxis when she was just 7 months old after eating peanut butter for the second time. It was the scariest moment of my life, holding my baby daughter while she started to go unconscious... 

Food allergies are not just an inconvenience, they are the very real realization that every time your child eats, their lives could possibly be at risk – has an ingredient changed, is there an undeclared allergen in this, was it cut with a knife that has a sliver of residue on it?

Food allergies are the realization that a toddler mindlessly putting their fingers in their mouths at the park could land them in the hospital.

Food allergies are lonely and isolating when holidays at family member's houses or family dinners at restaurants suddenly become so stressful, you can’t even bear the thought of going.  

Food allergies are staying up until midnight to make safe cupcakes for your child so they can have a treat at the birthday party, while praying that they don’t realize they are eating something different than the other kids.

Food allergies are praying that your kid doesn’t come up against a bully in school who has the ability to use their lunch as a weapon against your child.   

Food allergies are doing your best to advocate for your child before they have their own voice, and then teaching them to advocate for themselves.

I don't ever want any parent to go through what I went through, and I don't want any kids to have to live as cautiously as food allergy kids do, so please sponsor me to help raise funds and awareness for the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program at SickKids so they can find a cure for life threatening food allergies.
