“Kyle’s been able to take something that can be a lifelong challenge and turn it into something positive.” Julia Bradsher, CEO Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN)
All too often we hear news stories that focus on the “doom and gloom” side of allergies. Although they are very important in stressing the severity of anaphylaxis, they usually fail to mention the positive news – Food allergies are luckily manageable.
Although it can be difficult to put on a brave face with this condition, studies show that the more we embrace our allergies with a positive attitude, the higher our quality of life. Kyle Dine’s music aims to give this positive outlook to allergic children and help them become empowered over their allergies while seeing the bright side.
“Kyle Dine’s music made my kids smile instantly.” said food allergy parent Tiffany Ferreira, “They were so excited to sing and smile about their food allergies. Their confidence helps them navigate challenges.”
The performance is sponsored by Children’s Museum of Richmond, Allergy Apparel LLC and Food Allergy Fun. A food allergy resource table will be available at the event.
