Food Allergy School CANpaign: Rebekah is a Food Allergy CAN Opener


Rebekah is a Food Allergy CAN Opener

Let me be perfectly clear. Rebekah Wallace was already on the list to be featured as a CAN Opener long before she supported my Food Allergy School CANpaign by purchasing a book for her favorite teacher and by sharing her support for all to see. 

Rebekah is a shining star in our food allergy community. The 2018 Fairpark's Outstanding Teen’s personal platform is “Starting from Scratch - Eczema & Food Allergy Awareness.” She constantly is using her talented voice to advocate for people with food allergies. Even when she isn’t on a stage, she is raising awareness by wearing her sneakers everywhere!

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 is an advocate and well deserving of this week’s CAN Opener! Thank you Rebekah. You inspire me!
