We received the awesome email below from a mother of a peanut allergic boy who credits Bo's blog chronicling his peanut allergy cure as a major factor in their inspiration for enrolling their son in a similar treatment program in Raleigh, NC. These kind of stories validate why we shared Bo's peanut desensitization treatments and still maintain this blog even though Bo is now cured of his peanut allergy!
"Bo is an inspiration!
Hello! I just wanted to let you know that Bo’s story gave us the courage we needed to start OIT with our son. That was over a year ago. Tuesday is our last dose increase before maintenance and next December will be our peanut challenge. So I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am so encouraged to see long-term maintenance is easy and not at all burdensome for your son. Please continue to update every once in a while. You can read about my son’s Peanut OIT journey at www.parrotseeds.blogspot.com.
We also found a March 2013 post on Will's blog entitled "What Convinced Me?" that includes a reference and link to Bo's blog, as well as, other resources that any family considering the merits of food allergy desensitization treatment would find valuable.
Congratulations Will on your success so far with your peanut allergy desensitization. Thank you for sharing your own inspirational story of your courageous journey to cure your peanut allergy!
God bless and please join our prayers for the continued success and increased availability of treatment programs for life threatening food allergies.
Bo & Family
