NO “P” for our Umpkin Prince, he leaves the peanuts out! The book title created by my son Joseph. Joseph had a speech impairment his first few years. As a mother, the fear of him not being understood, and having severe food allergies, I became his voice from the moment we had been blessed. He taught me.
His love for pumpkins was much higher than going to get a toy! Orange he would call “Umpkin” color. His favorite color when asked, “The Rainbow” no limits with Joseph. He loved them all. Joseph had a dairy allergy. His allergy was severe to all dairy proteins. If ever in contact by a slight amount would bring him into an Anaphylaxis reaction. It is critical to understanding the signs. Many have their first reaction, to learning they are allergic. Everyone should recognize those signs, if in case you see another having such to help. It can happen at any age, and at any time.
This series is not just about food allergies. We will be focusing on obesity, diabetes, epilepsy so so much more. It is the voice of our current generation..to bring awareness and evolve.
