June was an amazing month of fundraising for IAFFPE. Four inspiring events raised nearly $30,000 to benefit IAFFPE and our FPIES community. A huge thank you to all the families, donors, volunteers, and attendees who helped make these events so successful.
The money raised has been designated for IAFFPE’s research fund and will go directly toward initiatives aimed at finding early detection techniques and a streamlined approach to treating FPIES patients. We’re spearheading some exciting initiatives that will help change the course of FPIES.
