My beautiful son Tyler has a serious peanut allergy which control's his whole life. He has had quite a few attacks now, all of which have been at school which worrys me so much. Once he has eaten a peanut he only has just a few minutes to get to his epi pen before his throat starts to swell. This for him it utterly terrifying as it would anyone. The two times he has had his most serious attacks were at school when sharing food from friends. Both times were really traumising for him, eslecially as i was not there. This horrible allergy will live with him forever and is a constant worry for all of us including him as everything he eats is a risk. This is not yet treatable on the NHS. I would love to try and raise the funds for Tyler to be treated privately so I have set up this funding page to try and raise some money towards the cost of his treatment. The treatment program runs over 2 years and the totally cost is £16920. If i could raise the funds to towards some treatment at the Cambridge allergy clinic this could change his whole life, and potentially save his life! Any donations to help towards the cost of the treatment will be truly appeciated.

About the fundraiser
I live with just Tyler (11) and my youngest son Leo (6). Tylers peanut allergy is very serious and this treatment would change his whole life. Most food items say may contain peanuts, food is cooked in peanut oil. This treatment could save his life.
