Recently the Food Allergy Research & Education organization (FARE) asked their teen advocates to ask their state governors to make a proclamation that the week of May 13-19 be Food Allergy Awareness Week.

After one of their teen advocates, St. Viator 8the Grade Student Kylie Curran, asked Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval to make this proclamation and he agreed.

Everyone in the food allergy community is really excited about this week. Food allergies are a life-threatening illness that affects as many as 15 million Americans. Out of those 15 million Americans,  6 million are under the age of 18, that is about 1 in every 13 children or 2 per classroom. Millions of Americans struggle every day living with food allergies.

Living with this life-threatening illness is not easy and this week will help raise awareness for everyone living with food allergies.
