EpiPen Take Action Teddy Bear Picnic June 4th at the Bradley Museum
It couldn’t have been a more perfect day at the Bradley Museum on Saturday, June 4th for The EpiPen Take Action Teddy Bear Picnic. Families brought their favourite Teddy Bears, Blankie and Picnic lunch in support of education and research for Anaphylaxis, Allergies and Asthma.
Mississauga Fire and Peel Police were there to support our families.
Children and adults alike were thrilled with the opportunity to ‘hang’ with these wonderful young men and women. In the case of an anaphylactic reaction, we are grateful for a committed team of first responders.
Trevor Shea, Mississauga Fire and EMS Training Officer, talked about the importance of having EpiPens on fire trucks and in public facilities.
12 year old Ella shared her eloquent and powerful story of life with food allergies. She said, “EpiPens are our superhero. They have saved my life and I know the importance of getting Epinephrine right away.”
