Being a brother or sister can be a lot of fun! But it can be hard to see a brother or sister get sick from FPIES reactions.
If you have a brother or sister living with FPIES, you may have a lot of questions, you may not understand what FPIES means, or you might need some extra help because of stressful feelings. You might want to find ways to help your brother or sister– but how?
You are not alone! There are many other brothers and sisters out there going through a lot of the same things you and your family are! There are also resources that can help!
Check out the tools and resources below and if you need to, ask a parent to help you to get in touch with these groups for more help and support.
Super Stars and Super Heroes!
