Our little boy Jax has not been lucky when it comes to food and freedom. We have had many trips in ambulances to the hospital due to Anaphylaxis from food and his list of allergies is extensive.
The fear that your child can eat a crumb of something and end up in hospital or worse is terrifying and we, like so many other people go through this on a daily basis.
We have done a lot of research and was told about an amazing place called the the Southern California Food Allergy Institute. We signed up and have been lucky enough to have come off the wait list, https://socalfoodallergy.org they have had over 13 years experience and only 0.004% have needed to use epinephrine during treatment. They also have over 96% success rate of food freedom for kids on their program.
We have exhausted all of the options here in Australia for treatment so we are taking a leap of faith and joining the program later this year in America. We have never put our hand out before and this has obviously been a huge decision to make for our family but you would do anything for your child's safety.
The cost of the TIP treatment program is quiet high and not covered by any insurance, travel back and forth to the the USA, etc as his list of allergies is extensive so we have decided to start this go fund me page not only to raise fund for the treatment but also, hopefully this might help other people become aware of what is offered overseas with regards to food allergy treatments.
We just want our child to be able to safely eat, to be able to go to kindy/school and play with his friends without the fear of having a severe reaction. You and Your child's health & well-being is the most important thing and we would do anything for ours.
Sky, Tash & Jax xo
