2017 Michigan FBody Meet & Greet - June 10th 2017!
It's that time of the year again! Frigid cold weather this week makes one even more anxious for Spring! So why not give yourself something to look forward to and check out our new Michigan FBody Meet & Greet website! http://www.mifbody.com/MeetGreet/
For 2017, our show will be supporting the FPIES Foundation as our charity of choice. What is FPIES, you ask? FPIES is Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome which essentially means your digestive system has an allergic reaction when ingesting certain proteins. These proteins are found in the majority of food, though, so a child with FPIES is very limited with what he or she can eat.
In the tail end of 2015, we moved into New Haven and met a lot of great new neighbors. One couple, though, has a child named Eliott who suffers from FPIES. As if it wasn't enough that he's allergic to most foods, he also has Mast Cell Activation Syndrome which gives him a similar reaction to the rest of the food which should have been safe! Elliot literally can only "eat" ice chips and breastmilk. Everything else causes a severe reaction.
If you're in the mood for a good cry, check out the following article and embedded video WDIV Detroit had on Elliot and the struggles him and his parents are going through.
For 2017, we'll be supporting the FPIES Foundation which is in desperate need for research funding. With everyone's help, we can help raise awareness and much needed funding to help come up with a cure to FPIES!
