With over 700,000+ Canadians suffering with allergies, the Allergy Explosion is here and real.
Allergy Info, Updates & Support: You Need It, We Need It. We gladly provide it.
So here we are, Moms of the estimated 2% of the Canadian population*, who have a child with a severe allergy. As a mom mother of one of those children with a serious food allergy, (peanuts) I can relate to the fears, frustration, concern and worries that exist. When our family was faced with this years ago in 1993, there was very little information and help. Today I am inspired by all the changes and yet hope to be a part of an even larger change.

“WOW I don’t really know what else to say. Candice helped our family so much by sharing her stories and information. It can be so scary facing a life-threatening allergy. Thank you so much for your information and invaluable support. “ – A. Nibor Montreal, Canada
Thanks for your suggestion to see a doctor for skin test for food allergies. I just thought it was normal for your nose to run after eating and thought it only had to do with ageing! What a difference it made for me! Gluten-free and feeling great!

I never knew how important it was to always ask about the hidden ingredients, even in a restaurant! So glad I asked – restaurants often use peanut oil to cook french fries. Do you know a kid that doesn’t eat french fries? Thanks Allergy Guardian!

Great suggestion to make sure that the Epipen is always there – just like your backpack/keys, you don’t leave home without it as well as to have multiple Epipens. We are also now better at replacing them on a regular basis and checking their expiry!
