My son has Eosinophilic Enteropathy. Translation: “His body thinks food is a parasite!”. When he eats he gets sick. HE CANNOT EAT ANY FOOD ANY MORE! It’s all been taken away! AND, he is STILL having problems, which mean he has become allergic to his formula – his ONLY source of nutrition!!! He is Seven years old! Imagine your children, or your own childhood without cookies, birthday cake, icecream, or halloween candy!? That is his life. Everyday, he watches people eat..and wonders why he has to be different! He says “I hate my body!”. YET – he is still your typical little boy. LOVES sports, rough housing and just being a kid. Recently, he got a feeding tube put in. This is because his formula is his MAIN source of nutrition – and he wasn’t drinking it. IT’S NASTY! So, the tube is reassurance that he is getting nutrition! :) Please view www.CUREDfoundation.org for more information. You can donate to research too! There is currently NO CURE for this! I want that MORE THAN ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!! To give him a TREAT! Thank you!
