May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month!

Each year, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.” It’s peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers, and a perfect time to educate about these diseases, as well as those that are non-seasonal related.

This month is close to my heart has my daughter is one of the 15 million Americans affected with food allergies.

FARE encourages everyone to participate, take action and make an impact on behalf of those with food allergies. Below is a calendar to guide you to take each day of the month and make a difference with the week of May 10-16 considered Food Allergy Awareness Week.

Throughout the month of May I’ll be sharing our story and some information about food allergies and hope you will join me this month to raise awareness.

      My husband and I also suffer from seasonal allergies as well and thankfully they go away after about a month for me, but then they always come back next year 🙁

    I suffer from allergies and am dreading this time of year because of them. I hate the fact that I have to take a medicine every year at this time. Thanks for sharing.

      My husband and I also suffer from seasonal allergies and rely on medicine too, but I make for one miserable person if I don’t take them. Hope yours aren’t as bad this year!
