The MHWFAC's annual fundraiser on December 3 was attended via Facebook and YouTube by hundreds of patients, caregivers, professionals and supporters -- and we heartily thank all who contributed to its success. 

With gifts from many generous contributions, we are able to proceed with our mental health support of individuals with food allergy, and advance the laboratory research that is crucial to conquering "Food Allergy: The Other Epidemic."
