I participated in the Walk to Axe Anaphylaxis in Toronto, Canada. It was started 3 years ago by a 13 year old girl with food allergies. She wanted to raise awareness and money for allergy research for her birthday. She raised 40,000 the first year! I was honoured to meet her and Sara Shannon (mother of Sabrina Shannon, Sabrina's Law was named after her- a law in Ontario that protects children with anaphylaxis)I also wrote a post for my blog covering the event. Want to let you know how much I enjoyed your book, Allergic Girl. You are truly inspiring...my goals this year are add travelling and eating out in restaurants with my family. My eldest son has allergies to dairy,egg,beef,sesame,fish,shellfish,peanuts/tree nuts,raspberry and mustard and my youngest to peanut/tree nuts. It has been challenging to say the least. Thank you for giving me the courage to 'step outside the box'! Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles
