“It was pretty scary,” Stephens says.  “We found out when he was 9-months-old, per our pediatrician’s advice to give peanuts and try it.”

“He started turning red around his mouth, and he started becoming really lethargic,” Stephens says.  “Basically, he started projectile vomiting, went limp, an anaphylactic reaction.”

They ended up in the ER and now carry an EpiPen injector and Benadryl everywhere they go. 

Stephens says even trace amounts of peanuts can trigger a reaction.
