A Child’s Death Does Not Become Us

It was Thanksgiving weekend and we were during my in-laws home in Florida. we was sitting outward enjoying a regard and chatting with my mother-in-law when my father came out and asked me if we had checked my emails.

My receiver immediately was lifted as my father has been revelation me of late how we am too connected to my phone and laptop. As a food allergy advocate, we spend large hours online and he is always endangered it is too much. we asked him to palm over his phone ― and fast scanned a emails. As we review a initial email, a tears only started and would not stop.

For a past 3 years, we have co-chaired a FARE (Food Allergy Research Education) celebration in NYC lifting supports and recognition about life-threatening food allergies. Each year, we list those who have died from anaphylaxis and have a solemn impulse of silence. We were about to supplement another child to a list.

The aforementioned email was from a mom of one of my son Joshua’s classmates behind in New Jersey. She wrote to tell me one of her son’s best friends Oakley Debbs (same age as my son, 11) who had a famous allergy to nuts had only died from food prompted anaphylaxis.
