Sup­port group for al­lergy suf­fer­ers

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

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.
