Danielle's fundraiser supporting CANADIAN ALLERGY, ASTHMA, AND IMMUNOLOGY FOUNDATION in Top 10 Challenge
I've had allergies my entire life, but at 17 I started having reactions to foods I'd always eaten. This started a 7-year journey involving multiple anaphylactic reactions, medical tests, and allergists, but at 24 I finally have answers. I have been diagnosed with a rare, heavily under-researched allergy "disorder" called exercise-induced anaphylaxis. I'm also allergic to peanuts, soy, peas, lentils, chickpeas, and NSAIDs.
For the Top 10 Challenge, I'll be avoiding all top 10 allergens for 10 meals. The funds raised will go to CAAIF, an organization which funds Canadian researchers in their pursuit for a cure. If just a bit more information was available, maybe it wouldn't have taken 7 years to find my answers. My hope is that through the funds we raise more information will be available to help newly-diagnosed people...or get rid of allergies altogether! ;)
