  1. ….. VERY SAD…. I have thought that my little allergies were bad…. this make me double think about my little allergies.

  2. Is there a fundraising website for her as well? I don't think I'd be able to make it to the OC for the fundraiser or the silent auction there either, unfortunately.

    My prayers are with this little girl and her family, it's so sad. I hope she gets a service doggie, and I hope the family can find some help. I'm not sure a classical homeopathic doc could go as deep to help her, but I've heard naturopaths will be soon accepted by insurance in CA, and that they can get to the root of problems. If she has Kaiser though, that might be enough, they are good about running tests.

  3. Some people are born without immune systems…others with over active immune systems..if only discovering the reasons behind one could resolve the other.

  4. This might sound crazy, but do some research on infecting yourself with hookworms. They can make a huge difference in allergies when managed properly.

  5. So her allergy is only to nuts and certain types of food? Why all of this just for that? This girl doesn't even have a life to live

  6. People have tried exposing kids who are allergic to peanuts to a tiny amount to try to almost build up their tolerance. Hopefully when she gets older her allergies won't be as bad and she can try this

  7. My brother is allergic to a lot of foods;

    Protein in Milk (NOT lactose-intolerant)
    Soy
    Wheat
    Eggs
    Peanuts, tree-nuts, nuts

    He also has allergies to anything with fur and feathers. He is also allergic to the outside trees and pollen.

    Even though he has these allergies, he does eat cake and cookies and other foods. There is such thing if rice milk and quinoa milk. He can eat cornstarch which is a big plus. Even though he has allergies he still eats some foods because there are alternatives <3

  8. I feel that little girl. I'm the same way allergic to almost all food grass trees flowers. So I do understand how it is

  9. how will a service dog help her exactly? it goes out with them and barks if it smells the protein or something? it makes no sense to me to require a service dog for allergies, even as severe as hers.

  10. If she's allergic to hugs how,is she not allergic to dogs? Im allergic to dogs,but still have them but if she dies from touching a peanut jesus christ

  11. My little cousin Miley is also VERY allergic to treenuts along with many other things. She can't even be in the same room as a peanut.
    She got a service dog for it and the pup has done wonders.

  12. Allergic to 65% of foods… I wonder if she has Mast cell activation syndrome… Ppl with this have allergic reactions to everything because ur body constantly releases histamine !

  13. I can’t imagine her pain, I’m allergic to dust mites, dust and wood shavings and types of stones. Everyday at school I go purple honestly the school dosent care

  14. Why won't ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox, broadcast stories of the multiple illegal prostitutes that corporations and congress partake in monthly all ages allotted?

  15. It's incredible that people live with these outrageous allergies. It's terribly sad and debilitating for the sufferer and their families. I'm thankful I don't have to deal with that. I hope she gets her service dog. She's so beautiful and she deserves to get some canine companionship. A 5 yr old should not even know the words "anaphylactic shock."

  16. When Im all ready to share in hopes others can go to the event, and realized was 3 years ago. Anyone know of an update to her story?
