A Valentine's Day Treat from Kaleo

  AUVI-Q Set to Relaunch Valentine's Day 2017 I'm thrilled to hear the AUVI-Q is returning!  If you got used to the smaller shape and size before I bet you are counting the days like I am.  AUVI-Q becomes available at the pharmacy on none other than Valentines Day 2017.  That can't be by accident.  AUVI-Q was a labor of love and necessity for the AUVI-Q brothers, Eric and Evan Edwards. The AUVI-Q inventors and now owners of Kaleo Pharma took back the rights to the AUVI-Q in 2015 after a massive AUVI-Q recall by Sanofi. Since then Kaleo has been working to get the AUVI-Q back on the market. Kaleo is rebuilding confidence in AUVI-Q by showing customers their intensive quality control...

When it's Time to Start Again, CarryNine Reopens

  AUVI-Q Relaunches. CarryNine Reopens With much excitement, CarryNine reopens the website. I can't wait to get things started again! I was thrilled to hear about the relaunch of the AUVI-Q in 2017.  Since many of my products were for the AUVI-Q I closed down my website until AUVI-Q was on the market again.  Now I'm pleased to be serving the food allergy community again.  Hopefully, Kaleo will bring the AUVI-Q to Canada soon! Get Adults Carrying Epinephrine I'm on a mission to get more teens and adults carrying their epinephrine. When my son was first diagnosed with a peanut allergy, people started telling me their own food allergy stories.  The thing that struck me most was that the adults in...

Goodbye Sale from CarryNine

AUVI-Q Recall and CarryNine Closes its Doors The Allerject and Auvi-Q recall last week was a shock to us all.  CarryNine was inspired and built around the compact design of the Allerject. I've put my heart and soul into the business for the last couple of years.  It is with a heavy heart that I say CarryNine will be closing its doors at the end of November.  CarryNine will be having going out of business sales on the Epipen wallets and skins until the end of November.  I've enjoyed contributing to the anaphylaxis and food allergy community.  If Allerject is reintroduced, we may be back.  Until then, stay safe!

4 Tips Every Teen with Food Allergies Needs to Know

Food Allergy Fatalities This Fall This fall has been a tragic one for those in the food allergy community. The news of the freshman Andrea Mariano's passing during her first week of her studies at the University of Queens in Kingston Ontario and 16-year-old Simon Kaz's death in Colorado were fresh in our minds when 17-year-old Morgan Crutchfield succumbed to anaphylaxis in North Carolina. I cannot imagine the loss the parents and those around them feel. As a food allergy parent these stories send chills down my back and fear in my heart. Similarities between the situations are striking: the deaths are attributed to anaphylaxis; they are teenagers (ie. Between 11 to 18 years old); they had peanut allergies; both...

How to Get Publicly Available Epinephrine in Your Town

Canada's Largest Publicly Available Auto Injector Program Sussex straddles the Kennebacasis River, 70 km (43 mi) northeast of Saint John, and is a major dairy products producer in the province. It is home to Atlantic Canada's largest hot air balloon festival. Source:,_New_Brunswick It looks like someone should update that wikipedia definition to read “It is home to Canada's largest publicly available auto injector program.”   Carrying epinephrine with you at all times is the golden rule when you have severe allergies - hopefully in a CarryNine Wallet Auvi-Q Case. But, when you have a first reaction or you're stung by bees or insects or you simply forgot to bring your Epipen with you, publicly available epinephrine could save your life.  ...
