Support group for allergy sufferers
A SUPPORT group for allergy sufferers set up by a dad whose son had a severe reaction will meet to help others in Macclesfield.
Paul Moses, from Macclesfield, has launched a support group to help others affected by severe allergies – or anaphylaxis.
The next meeting is coming up later this month.
Paul’s group is in conjunction with the Anaphylaxis Campaign charity.
He said: “I got involved with the campaign after my son Jaime’s first anaphylactic reaction at seven months, which was severe.
“Doctors in A&E failed to diagnose allergy, so it was left to me to search the internet for his symptoms.
“I was able to get a referral to an allergy specialist where he was diagnosed with wheat and peanut allergy.
“We know of others in our area affected so I have decided to set up a local group, with specialists at our local allergy centre.
“Hopefully the group will offer support to people who might otherwise feel isolated and unsupported.”
The meeting is on Saturday, March 25, from 10.30am-12.30pm in the lecture theatre (1st floor), at Macclesfield Hospital, Victoria Road.
