Living with severe allergies and being at risk of anaphylaxis (a severe and potentially fatal allergic reaction) seriously affects the lives of those at risk. There is currently no cure or treatment to prevent anaphylaxis – instead people must learn to manage their condition and carry adrenaline.

The Anaphylaxis Campaign is the only UK wide charity focused on supporting those at risk of severe allergies. We have been providing information and support to patients and their families for over 21 years.

They do not receive any government funding or grants and rely on support from people like you to create a safer and better life for those living with the fear of anaphylactic shock.

So, get ready to show your support to those living with severe allergies by donning your orange wig on Friday 19 May 2017 for Orange Wig Day

To sign up to fundraise for Orange Wig Day as an individual, school or business or to order your orange wig see the Anaphylaxis Campaign website here.

  

One Response to Anaphylaxis Campaign – Orange Wig Day Friday 19 May 2017

    I have suffered anaphylaxis twice and both times it was horrible. I was 47 when I first suffered and 50 the second time, allergies have been a part of my life since I was small, but back in the 60s it wasn’t seen as something serious, just brushed off as a cold (hay fever and swollen eyes!) or heat lumps (hives!). I don’t know how I survived my childhood to be honest. My daughter was born with several allergies, the first being eggs at 4-5 months followed by eczema at 6 months and several more sufferings of anaphylactic shock before she was 1. She isn’t as bad now (she’s 30) but still has eczema and occasionally reacts badly to something.
