The worst reaction she has had was during the Anthrax scare years ago, her boss insisted she had to wear gloves to open the mail. Kate knew if she did this she would have some sort of reaction and sure enough latex powder got in my eyes and my lips, they both blew up to at least three times the normal size and Kate couldn’t see out of her eyes properly until they went down hours later.
“Hi, I’m Jo, mum of 2 and retired police officer from England, UK. I have had severe allergies (peanuts, almonds and latex) for the last 13 years and had many anaphylactic shocks. I fully support Globalaai as allergy awareness is vital. There is lack of information about allergies or they are often misunderstood and not taken seriously.”
“The biggie in my life at the moment is #alwayscarrytwo campaign that I manage alongside two other amazing allergy mums. We are campaigning for the right for every UK patient to have prescribed a minimum of 2 AAI’s. The campaign was born after dangerous recommendations were made last October by a leading allergy advisor the BSACI that the ‘majority of patients require only 1 AAI’. My petition has nearly 48,000 supporters to date against these proposals and we target the campaign through social media . Together we can educate, together we can make changes. We need your support.”
