To amplify the voices of people whose daily lives are affected by allergies and invisible disease, we created the #ThatKid initiative. Our hope is to bring awareness to these important conditions through powerful, real-life stories, shared by people just like you.
My son has food allergies. Yours might have autism, diabetes, or struggle with anxiety, depression, or bullying. We can work together to make sure that all our kids are safe and included.
Our mission is to deliver evidence-based education about allergies and allergic disease. We believe that people who understand their condition can not only better manage their disease and prevent adverse outcomes, but also live happier, healthier lives.
The goals of the #ThatKid campaign are to promote understanding, empower patients through education, and help build a support network for the people with allergic disease. That said, the campaign is not just for people with allergies. #ThatKid is about starting out with a diagnosis or a label but growing beyond that label so that a condition does not define you.
