The best treat we can give them….
….Is a CURE!
My son has Eosinophilic Enteropathy. Translation: “His body thinks food is a parasite!”. When he eats he gets sick. There are VERY FEW foods his body will accept. Deer, applesauce (not apples), and Oats. He is six years old, and that is all he gets! 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 APFED.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!
