THIS Teenage Girl Is Actually Severely Allergic To Air. THIS Is The Unthinkable Way She Stays Alive!

Most people have experienced some sort of allergy over the course of their lives.  Even if you are not severely allergic to nuts or bee stings, tree pollen and other types of seasonal allergies likely aggravate your sinuses and cause your eyes to water and itch.  As uncomfortable and annoying dealing with allergies can be, imagine being allergic to just about any and everything in the air. For one fifteen year old girl from Maine, that nightmare is a reality.    

She was living a normal life just two years ago, but one day Martina Baker woke up and was shocked to see that her body was covered in red itchy hives.  They were even in her throat and so her mother rushed her to the hospital where she was treated and released.

From that point on Martina kept having recurring allergic reactions but what was causing them remained unknown.  She found herself in the hospital several times a week for months on end and despite visiting numerous doctors, specialist after specialist could not tell her what the issue was.

When an immunologist from Massachusetts diagnosed her as having Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, or MCAS, Martina finally had the answer she was looking for.  Now she could finally understand her condition, deal with it properly, and hopefully get her life back to as normal as could be. MCAS is an illness that causes people to become allergic to virtually anything in the air that is not oxygen.  There are hundreds of different scents and smells that will trigger an episode, including cooking oil, smoke, perfumes, water and heat.

Since her diagnosis, Martina has changed her lifestyle drastically.  She wears a face mask most of the time and especially anytime she goes outside or in public, which is rarely.  Having such a severe condition has also led to her losing a lot of friends, it’s hard for them to understand and has left her isolated.  Her family has had to adapt too, they now cook outside a lot, don’t do laundry with detergents, and only use vinegar to clean.  

After awhile Martina started to become depressed and forlorn.  Her life had been turned completely upside down out of the blue and she couldn’t even leave her house without fearing a severe allergic reaction.  When her mother heard about a service dog program that trained dogs to detect the release of histamine in the body and thus warn their owner of an imminent allergic reaction, she knew it was exactly what Martina needed.  The only thing that stood in the way was the high cost of such a specially trained dog, they were $10,000.  

Knowing that the dog could save Martina’s life in more ways than one, her family set up a GoFundMe page to help offset the cost and spread the word.  Soon after they had raised the money and now Martina has her service dog, a boxer mix named Kiva.  

When Kiva first arrived, she was accompanied by a trainer who helped Martina and her new dog understand one another.  Now when Martina is about to have an allergic reaction Kiva will kiss her around the mouth and physically prevent her from walking into the allergen. 

At night Kiva checks on Martina, even when she’s sleeping, and knowing that her dog is by her side and constantly on the alert has made all the difference in the world for everyone in the family.  Perhaps the most meaningful thing of all to come out of this is the friendship that Kiva and Martina have quickly developed.

Anybody who has a child know they are like little parrots. Whatever they see mom or dad doing they attempt to mimic their behavior. There is nothing better than a little kid proving to themselves that they can do anything their parents can do. Not only do they shadow your every move, their little brains and eyes are locked on you at all times, soaking in every last drop of information their minds can handle.

Many daughters want to be just like their mommy! They will was watch their mama get ready, buy putting on beautiful dresses, doing their hair and finally doing their makeup. It is always fun to play dress up and become a little princess. Most of the time nothing goes wrong and everything is just fine..

However, there are exceptions to this which we will cover in the following article and video. Parent’s Kylie and Tony Cravens got their baby girl toy makeup to wear which was supposedly completely harmless. When they got home from the store, their daughter obviously wanted to immediately try her new toy makeup. Mama helped her apply it and all was well, everyone was smiling, laughing and having a good time.

Then out of no where the toddler began to feel ill and broke out in rashes all over her face. At first she just felt a little burning, then the pain became more and more excruciating. Blisters we’re beginning to form in all the areas they applied the make up to. At this point her parents rushed her to the hospital because they obviously could sense something was very wrong with their baby.

The doctor told them this was clearly some type of anaphylactic allergic reaction to the toy makeup she had applied. It got so bad that those blisters led to swelling of her whole head and she was in a lot of pain.

Mom wanted to spread the word about her daughters situation so she posted it on social media and it quickly went viral!

THIS 3-Years-Old Boy Died After He Ate a Grilled Cheese At School. His Mom Reveals The Terrifying Reason Why!

Food allergies seem to be popping up more and more within the human population. Whether it’s a gluten allergy, lactose intolerance or a nut allergy it seems like almost everyone you meet has at least one of these allergies. Now this is a bit of an exaggeration but almost 8% of kids under 18 years old have at least 1 food allergy.

This has caused a massive increase in awareness among restaurants, schools, hotels and just about anywhere you can grab some food. Many of these places just doing a full ban on foods such as peanuts,  shellfish and tree nuts. These 3 and the following are the most common food allergies in kids: wheat, milk, soy fish and eggs.

Even with these proper precautions in place, food providers being vigilant, careful and following exact protocol, accidents can still easily happen. Although the majority of the food allergies are the ones named above, some people have more rare food allergies that they may or may not even know about until it’s too late.

This being said, many older kids and adults are aware of their food allergies and if they accidentally consume a food that contains their allergy trigger, they sense the signs and symptoms as they are coming on and know exactly how to proceed in order to avoid a tragedy.  Some people carry Epi-Pens and/or other anti-allergy medications just in case. If they sense this is a really bad allergy attack they know when it’s time to call the EMS and hospital to get it treated properly before it is too late.

This brings us to younger children who really can’t grasp the concept of food allergy and rely on their caregivers and other trusting adults to give them the right foods that won’t cause an anaphylactic reaction. Many schools and their faculty are fully prepared just in case a student needs help immediately.

The problem is sometimes, adults forget or just don’t know that the child they are caring for has a food allergy. Which brings us to today’s story which features mom Deana Silveira and dad Thomas Silveira and their little 3-year-old son Elijah Silveira. Their young boy Elijah was attending the 7th Avenue Center for Family Services which provides care for children who are under the age of 4. Some of the perks of the center are tasty and healthy meals, care for kids with special needs and just an overall good environment for your child to spend the day.

On one morning in November something happened that nobody saw coming. Elijah was off to his Pre-K classes at the Family Services Day Care just like any other day normal day of his young life. The morning ran smooth, nothing was out of the ordinary until lunch time. One of the faculty gave Elijah a grilled cheese sandwich that fateful day in November. Allegedly the employee was aware of Elijah’s dairy and other food allergies but it must’ve just slipped their mind that day.

The child ate the grilled cheese sandwich and minutes later fell to the floor in anaphylactic shock! The center had a full protocol in place if this situation ever occurred. First, inject the child with an Epi-Pen, Call 9-11, do CPR if the child is unresponsive until the medics show up and finally call the child’s parent and let them know about what is happening!

For some reason that day in November none of the proper protocol was taken. Elijah wasn’t injected with an Epi-Pen, 9-11 wasn’t called, however all they did was call his mom Deana and told her to pick him up and bring him to a doctor or the hospital. His mother frantically ran out of the house, got to the center as soon as possible and drove her son to the hospital.

At the hospital the doctors and nurses tried everything they could, but because too much time had lapsed Elijah was beyond the point of no return. Elijah was pronounced dead at the hospital on that tragic and fateful day in November.

Next, an investigation began to try and piece together what happened that horrific day that led to this young boy’s untimely demise. Investigators quickly learned that all the protocols that were in place were ignored and that the center failed on every level! The Family Services Day Care Center was shut down indefinitely due to negligence and being the reason this family lost their child.

Elijah’s tragic story is a stark reminder that one simple mistake can lead to the death of a child.
