Currently, 15 million – yes MILLION – Americans are living with a food allergy. This means that one in every 13 children is affected. Food allergies can range from minor reactions (stomachache, hives) to extremely serious, resulting in long-term hospitalization and death.
“Celebrating Cross” is a Gala organized by the Hatfield Family, who nearly lost their youngest son Cross two years ago due to a severe nut allergy. January 15, 2019 marked two years since Cross suffered from anaphylactic shock. He fought for his life for five long days in PICU at Scottish Rite Hospital. Thankfully, the excellent staff at Scottish Rite were able to help Cross pull through and he is a thriving, happy 9 year old boy.
