Many of our members have reported issues getting epinephrine auto-injectors in the past few months. But there has not been a shortage of epinephrine itself. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to ask them to fix this system. Sign onto our letter and add your personal story.
Kaléo, maker of AUVI-Q, and Walgreens have formed a partnership to carry AUVI-Q epinephrine auto-injectors at locations across the nation. This will offer more epinephrine options for many families. AAFA and KFA issued a statement this week applauding this effort to make life-saving medicine more accessible.

You Can Save Lives
It’s because of donors like you that we’re able to teach families how to adjust to a new diagnosis of food allergy – and how to send their children off to school safely. Families can find information, understanding, support and hope for managing food allergies day-to-day.

This education and support would not be possible without your generous help. Your gift will be life-changing – and lifesaving.
Thank you for your continued support.
