FPIES United Family Fund and the CHOP Food Allergy Center

Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome(FPIES) is a condition that affects infants and young children. Current research is needed, as many children over the age of 5 are still affected by FPIES as well. FPIES is a non-IgE allergy. The symptoms of this type of allergic reaction are delayed and include repetitive vomiting that may not start for a few hours following ingestion of the food to which the child is allergic. Even trace amounts can trigger a reaction. There is often diarrhea filled with blood, mucous and undigested foods that starts later. In some cases, the reaction includes hypotension and lethargy. Occasionally, the child becomes so severely dehydrated from uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhea that they run the risk of shock. The treatment is symptomatic and can include hospitalization for IV fluids and steroids. The latter is given because the pathophysiology is that of a T-cell response.

Established in September, 2010, the FPIES United Family Fund is the first and only grassroots research fund for FPIES worldwide. Many families, across the globe have traveled to CHOP in search of a diagnosis and treatment plan for their FPIES child. Together, these families have supported CHOP and this fund, by hosting benefits and events to create new funding for FPIES research. Currently, the FPIES United Family Fund is please to become a funding resource for FPIES research in the newly developing Food Allergy Center at CHOP. The Food Allergy Center has developed very ambitious goals and hopes to prevent, and one day eradicate, all food allergies and their accompanying life-threatening dangers and lifestyle hardships that affect a dramatically increasing population of allergy patients. The mission of the Food Allergy Center is to be the leader in recognizing, managing and treating the full spectrum of food allergies through groundbreaking research, full use of CHOP's operational expertise and resources, and passion for improving children's lives with optimal, personalized patient care. The FPIES United Family Fund will continue to raise funds, in addition to numerous funding sources, for FPIES research through CHOP's Food Allergy Center. The Fund hopes that by raising funds for research, an understanding of the pathophysiology and improved treatment of FPIES will be developed. Ultimately, we wish to find the cause and cure to FPIES.

Please help to make change in the lives of a FPIES patient and family, and to help the wonderful physicians at CHOP to find the cause and the cure for FPIES by making a donation to this fund. Hope Lives Here!

FPIES Family Connection

"After 19 months of searching for a diagnosis for our now two year old son, we took the trip to CHOP, where he was diagnosed within minutes by Dr. Terri Brown-Whitehorn with FPIES. It was a bittersweet moment for us; we learned FPIES is a rare, under-diagnosed, under-recognized non-IgE allergy. Since then, our son's quality of life has improved greatly; his physicians have knowledge, compassion and empathy and they understand our journey. They have never shied away from any questions or concerns we have, which has taken a great deal of stress away from our family."
Fallon and Christopher Schultz

"FPIES rocked our world in ways we could not imagine. One day everything is normal and then in the blink of an eye you are scared to feed your child. A seemingly harmless food that is supposed to nourish him and help him grow can now be the enemy. As a mother it breaks your heart when trying to feed your child knowing that you could be making him very ill. FPIES impacts your every waking moment and consumes you. My prayers will be answered when the medical community recognizes this condition and families will no longer have to fight for a diagnosis. " Jen Logue

"Our little ones are the heroes that carry more than most ever could bear... and we have the honor of being their voice until theirs are heard..." Katie Kanuchok

"I believe that in part, a mother’s created purpose is to nourish her children. For 19 months, FPIES has robbed me of this joy and in its place has left fear, uncertainty, and a sense of heartbreak. Each time I have to tell my twins “no” or “danger” as they watch other children eating or snacking, something inside of me grows stronger both the will and desire to find answers and healing and a deep resentment toward food itself." Nichole Gatten, mother to FPIES twins

Your donations will help to support change for a FPIES family. Research of this rare condition is desperately needed. Please consider making a monetary donation to this fund. Every dollar is a step closer to a cure.

My name is Lorna Harron, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr momodo, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr momodo's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr momodo, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High momodospelltemple@gmail.com anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here's his contact: momodospelltemple@gmail.com

Andrea Ramsay
Sat, Jul 12, 2014
My name is Andrea Ramsay from USA My boyfriend and I were happy as far as I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When his cousin died in a tragic car accident he went back to Philippine for a week to be with his family. I could not go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. He did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let him be. The next thing that I know, he reconnected with an old friend from high school that he had a crush on years ago and they started to have an affair! I had no clue what was going on until a month after he came back from Philippine.He proceeded to see both her and I until I caught him testing her one night. I confronted him and he told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about a month of not speaking to him I became sad. I wanted him to tell me that he wanted to be with me and not her. I contacted Dr.Mako for a love spell and he totally helped me! he was able to get him to miss me to where he wanted to get back together again. He had a lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in general. He values our relationship so much more now and we are together now! You can also get your lover back with the help of Dr. Mako contact him through his email: makospiritualtemple@gmail.com

Andy Sowers
Sat, Jul 12, 2014
An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{tataspelltemple@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {tataspelltemple@gmail.com},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the tatalovespellcaster for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. {tataspelltemple@gmail.com}, Thanks...
