Elijah-Alavi

#FoodAllergy “Elijah-Alavi Affiq Thomas Silvera would have been turning 5 years old [today] Wednesday, January 16th. I created this video in honor of his birthday to bring awareness to food allergies.

The Elijah-Alavi Foundation and #elijahsecho is an initiative designed to raise awareness of the importance of severe food allergy/anaphylaxis education and training as well as asthma w/ allergies. The #elijahsecho movement has been born of the tragic incident that occurred in a New York City Pre-K school/Daycare center on November 3rd, 2017. The incident of which, soon after caused my son Elijah-Alavi to pass away. Despite the school having well documented all his severe food allergy and his severe allergy to dairy products, an adult employee had fed my son Elijah-Alavi a grilled cheese sandwich. Following the incident, Medical professionals worked on Elijah-Alavi as he was going into anaphylactic shock. The school had failed to report what Elijah-Alavi had been fed. Soon after, my son Elijah-Alavi passed away.

The Elijah-Alavi Foundation Inc nonprofit 501 (c) (3) Was able to pass a Law called Elijah's Law #A10031 in the Senate and we’re working harder to move this bill further. Elijah’s echo had also aided in the amendment of the NYC Department of Health Codes by providing safety with training provide by Code Ana and with Kaléo pharmaceutical donating 7500 Auvi-Q (epinephrine injection, USP) to all NYC regulated daycare centers to protect our young children. Let's continue to create and build an awareness by putting a name and face to the importance of severe food allergy ,anaphylaxis and asthma safety in the inner city schools/pre-K and daycare centers here in NYC and hopes to continue nationally.

The Elijah-Alavi Foundation Inc. is one that is very close to many of our hearts, and we are working very hard to honor his memory. With every donation given, it will go to directly to the Elijah-Alavi Foundation, so we can utilize our mission/initiative by providing the training and education in these New York City Schools/Daycare centers etc. Come and stand with my family and I. We encourage you to share Elijah-Alavi story and video by using the hashtag #elijahsecho and promote food allergy/anaphylaxis and asthma awareness and safety.

Sincerely,
Thomas Silvera, CST
