Turning anaphylaxis tragedy into purpose
Death from anaphylaxis is rare.
But when it happens to your child, the rarity of it doesn't matter.
And how do you move forward?
Here is what the Suhy's do…
The Allison Rose Foundation is fighting anaphylaxis.
I'm honored to be joined on this episode with Mike and Becca Suhy of the Allison Rose Foundation. Mike and Becca founded this amazing non-profit to honor their sweet daughter Allison, who passed away from anaphylaxis when she was just a freshman in college.
Mike and Becca are turning their anaphylaxis tragedy into purpose by creating amazing food allergy educational opportunities for their community. In collaborating with board-certified allergists and the Code Ana organization, Allison Rose Foundation education has reached THOUSANDS of teens and school personnel across Ohio.
Tune in to this episode to learn about their daughter, the food allergy education they're leading, and their tips for advocating for your child.

Additional Show Notes
I have talked about a non-profit…
The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. This is one of the most important components of a school's food allergy policy!
A medical emergency response plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program, and Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
