Story

Thank you for visiting our page. 

Jake is 8yrs old and has suffered with food allergies since birth, firstly he suffered terrible eczema in which no amount of creams helped, he then refused to eat after only days of weaning him from milk he would scream in pain and refuse any food, after his 1st blood test it was discovered he had a wheat allergy, then at 10months he suffered an anaphylaxis shock to egg, after this the list of allergys grew, from food allergys to pet allergies and then air bourne allergies to which we had no idea what was causing his reactions. 

Jake had blood tests after blood tests, was admitted to hospital for food challenges, had to see his pediatric team every 6 months & dietitians to establish a healthy balance for him, having no wheat caused alot of bowel problems. 

His allergies became worse when was 5 being diagnosed with a severe nut allergy, he only came into contact with one and had a major reaction, Jake can't be in the same room as an open packet or be touched by anyone that has been in contact with nuts themselves. 

Jake has been so grown up and amazing with the knowledge of his allergies and now wants to spread awareness of just how serious allergies are. 

His is life threatening/life changing & life worrying! Relying on the hope that his epi-pens help & work when needed. 

More awareness should be out there for people who don't know about them, parents aren't wanting "special treatment" for their child/children we just want our child/children to be safe and alive. 

Please help Jake to share this and help Allergy UK to keep doing the amazing work they do. 

Jake's School, Warren Park Primary are doing a non school uniform day to raise funds, we also have a school raffle being held with some amazing prizes from local businesses and family and friends, we would like to raise as much as we possibly can. 

Thank you 

Jake & Vicky X
