About Food Allergy Support Durham
My name is Adele and I started this group in January 2016. My 4 year old son has severe allergies to peanuts, walnuts, pecans, sesame, banana and unbaked dairy and egg. Our journey started when he was just a baby and we had our first allergist appointment at just 6 months old. 4 years later and we’re still learning as we go.
A huge difference in my life as a mom of a food allergic kid and the inspiration to start this group was the discovery of the Toronto Food Allergy Education and Support Group. By attending those meetings I have met friends going through similar experiences who I can chat with and know that they truly get it. These friendships have been invaluable to me. My goal in starting this group was to set up an outlet for parents to meet and have support from other families going through similar experiences within their local community, here in Durham.
