Within 10 years, the SickKids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program wants to find a CURE

For approximately 300,000 Canadian children and their families, constant anxiety and stress over the possibility of an allergic reaction is a part of everyday life. Refraining from all contact with common food allergens - such as nuts, milk and eggs - can be a difficult and worrisome task, especially in childhood. 

The SickKids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program is determined to change that.  The goal of our world class immunology and allergy experts is to prevent and ultimately cure food allergy in 10 years. 

The SickKids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program will generate new knowledge and therapies to address the growing burden of allergy. For families, it's an effort that will provide peace of mind in knowing that a child will never again have to live under the constant threat of an allergic reaction. To transform hope for families living with allergy, we will discover a cure.  SickKids is leading the fight. With your help, we’ll win.
