Food Allergy Awareness Week 2015

May 10th through May 16th 2015 marks Food Allergy Awareness Week.

We all live with the stress of managing food allergies, so I think it is nice to have a chance to celebrate in spite of the challenges. Food Allergies have made us more aware of what we eat, where it comes from. They led me to starting this blog, and my desire to help others through advocacy. Food Allergies led me to finding some of the most wonderful friends and allies through social media- who enrich my life and fill my heart. I can not imagine my life without the community and friends I have made- all because of food allergies.
