Allison is a happy 8 year old girl. She was sick as an infant and was diagnosed with GERD at the age of 4. By the time she was 6, Allison was constantly sick and in pain. It has been almost 2 years since her EE diagnosis. We have been able to trial a few foods which have passed, but in the meantime Alli’s dad has devoted a lot of time playing with recipes and alternative ingredients to replicate some of Allison’s favorite foods. Here is an essay that Alli wrote for her 3rd grade assignment:
I am thankful for my family because they love me more than anything. They make me safe food. By the way, I have EE and that means I have a sickness that makes me sick to a lot of food but that doesn’t hurt my life. NO! Not at all. That’s what I am thankful for. Love, Allison S..
