It's a Beautiful Life
We are Food Allergy Research & Education’s (FARE) Teen Advisory Group (TAG) members. We have written this book named “It’s a Beautiful Life” to offer encouragement for those managing food allergies, and for those without food allergies, it demonstrates how to show care and empathy. This book is full of our individual experiences and how we lived with food allergies. Our goal is to share our experiences with others and educate people about how we managed our food allergies. This book encourages people with allergies to stay optimistic about their allergies and empowers them to become advocates of food allergies. Our stories emphasize the importance of empathy and how to be thoughtful towards people with food allergies. We truly want to help raise awareness for allergies, make a change in the allergy community, and help out those with food allergies as much as we can.
