AllergyKids.com on Good Morning America

DiseaseProof's buddy Robyn O’Brien, founder of AllergyKids.com, was recently featured on Good Morning America. Take a look:


And from the GMA report:
“I had made scrambled eggs and put them in front of all four kids and decided to put them in front of the baby," the 36-year-old said. "I put them on her highchair and she didn't want them, fussed and pushed them away. And I didn't think anything of it."


But 9-month-old Tory's aversion to the breakfast staple had little to do with taste, as O'Brien soon found out.

"I put her down for a nap. A few minutes later and there was some mother instinct in me because I went in to check on her for some reason, which I rarely do, and her face was swollen shut," O'Brien said.

A life-threatening reaction to eggs caused grotesque swelling of the infant's face and instantly shook O'Brien to her core. She said her daughter's severe response prompted her to take a closer look at what she was feeding all of her children and to educate herself on food allergies.
No doubt, Robyn’s a DiseaseProof celebrity. Check out these posts:

I think Robyn is really wonderful. When I found out I had food allergies last year, I came across her story and her site and I just think she's doing wonderful things!
