How about this grandma who burst into action when her grandson was diagnosed with food allergies?. Lita Indzel Cohen started a foundation, FARI (Food Allergy Research Initiative), basing it in the lab at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she serves on the Board of Trustees.
The goal of FARI is to study food allergy and develop a treatment for it. They've been making progress using immune modulation to decrease the severity of allergic responses in peanut allergic mice.
Hopefully FARI research will lead to treatment and a cure for Lita's grandson and many others who deal with food allergies.
As more pieces of the puzzle are added, hopefully appropriate food allergy treatments will emerge. Thanks for your contribution, Lita!
