Food Allergy CAN Openers!


I am always inspired when I receive photos of young people connecting with my Land of Not book and Can-inspired message. Thank you @rebekahreacts for supporting our Food Allergy CANpaign by sending the book to one of your favorite teachers @heidi.sloan and her #1stgrade class.

Rebekah is a role model to many who live with food allergies. She doesn’t just say she has a CAN mindset, she lives it. She constantly is using her talented voice to advocate for people with food allergies. And when she sent the book to her former teacher, and when her teacher shared it with her class, another series of CAN Openers emerged!
