Alexander, Age 23

My son has eosinophilic gastritis and esophagitis. His foods are very limited and he basically lives off chicken breast and rice. Even with vitamins he is too sick and weak to hold a job. We are trying to get him some kind of aid or assistance but until then it would help immensely if our medical insurance would cover formula for him. The picture I’m attaching is from his last Birthday. What should have been a happy day at Disneyland was in fact a sad day because he got sick from foods he tried to eat.
