Nonprofit created to honor the memory and legacy of Allison Rose Suhy

CLEVELAND, OH.—November 1, 2018—Severe food allergies are on the rise and continue to be misunderstood. If proper education is put in place from a young age, food allergy sufferers, their support systems, and the general population, will be properly informed and prepared to understand, recognize and effectively manage a severe food allergy and life threatening reaction.

In an extreme effort to prevent families from experiencing the food allergy tragedy of a child or young adult, the Allison Rose Foundation announces today its official launch. Dedicated to changing the lives of food allergy families through education, awareness, research and advocacy, the organization strives to decrease and eliminate untimely deaths of children and young adults due to food allergic reactions. As food allergy children evolve through their stages of life, their supporting communities change making food allergy education crucial.

The Allison Rose Foundation was formed in memory of Allison (Ally) Rose Suhy, a Cleveland (Independence), Ohio native whose life ended tragically in November 2017 as a result of an anaphylactic food allergic reaction.

Following her unexpected death only three months into her new life as a college student, her family vowed to find purpose in their tragedy. “To us, creating the Allison Rose Foundation was a way to honor Ally’s impactful life and ensure her legacy be inspirational,” said Michael Suhy, founder, and Ally’s father. “We do not want to see another family experience what we have, and by creating the Foundation and carrying out its mission, we believe we can save lives.”

The Allison Rose Foundation will host a Founder’s Event Saturday, January 26, at the Embassy Suites in Independence, Ohio from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Funds raised during this event, and through ongoing donations, will be used for educational platforms and scholarships, awareness campaigns, research and continuous advocacy.
