awareness is action bannerIn 1998, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, created Food Allergy Awareness Week to educate others about food allergies, a potentially life-threatening medical condition.  The FPIES Foundation is participating in Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW), May 12-18, 2013 with awareness campaigns through our website, social media and other online tools.  We hope you will join us in spreading the awareness about FPIES!


The FPIES Foundation theme for FAAW is Awareness is Action!  Your actions are ‘paving the path’ and  awareness is the cornerstone to building a foundation of active support for FPIES children. Together, with collaboration of families and medical professionals, we will continue to make changes today to building this lasting foundation for tomorrow, providing a network of caring, the support your need to support your child.
