Having just upgraded to an iPhone, I was super excited to upload this free app from ‘Apple’s App Store’. Just search for the term “Why Risk It?”. The app is available for both the iPhone and iPad, as well as, phones and tablets that run on the Android and Blackberry operating systems. Just check their respective app stores.
Not only does Anaphylaxis Canada’s ‘Allergy App For Teens’ contain all the pertinent information all allergenic youth need regarding anaphylaxis but it also contains a direct link to the “Why Risk It? Teen Allergy Blog”. A great source for allergenic youth to read about the lives of other youth with allergies.
I will certainly be bringing it to the attention of my boys’ high school principal and at the next Parent Council (I finally joined this year). Anaphylaxis Canada’s ‘Allergy App For Teens’ is the perfect educational tool for all teachers. It gives teachers quick, easy access to refresh their memories with information on “What is Anaphylaxis?, Symptoms, Treatment and FAQ’s”, as well as, information on “Why Risk It?” and a link to their blog.
Have you downloaded Anaphylaxis Canada’s ‘ Allergy App For Teens’ yet?
P.S. Just to let you know…I have not dropped off the face of the earth. lol Living, breathing, shopping, cooking and talking about food allergies 24/7 can become quite overwhelming. I think I just needed a break from writing about it.
With my eldest son, Michael, heading off to university next year, there is much to think about…a new stage in all of our lives. Michael’s journey towards ‘independent living’ and my journey of learning to ‘let go’.
Coming soon, I will be writing about this new chapter in our lives.
