I Share this Journey with You
Thank you for considering a gift to the University of Michigan Food Allergy Center (FAC), the largest and most comprehensive center of its kind in the country.
Perhaps you have a food allergy—or perhaps, like me, you're inspired to help a loved one who suffers from food allergies. Whether your interest is finding a cure, or improving the lives of those who suffer from food allergies by supporting cutting-edge research, or helping expand our clinical and community services, the FAC welcomes you as a partner. Together, we are making a difference.
The ability of FAC physicians and scientists to generate new knowledge through research, translate it into effective clinical practice, and provide hope to those who suffer is dependent upon private gifts. On a national level, the battle against this epidemic, compared to other diseases, is incredibly underfunded. In 2008, the National Institutes of Health's annual budget was $29.5 billion, of which only $19 million was allocated to food allergy research.
Every single dollar raised is important to this center, and our findings are valuable to the global food allergic community.
Please make a gift today. If you are food allergic, or have children, grandchildren or friends with food allergies, your gift will have a tremendous impact on our path to a cure. Thank you in advance for your help.
