Anaphylaxis Canada signs spokespersons

Charitable organization Anaphylaxis Canada has signed two spokespersons as part of its food allergy awareness program. The spokespersons are Bruce Croxon, host of CBC program Dragons' Den, and his spouse Debra Thier, whose children have food allergies. The two will begin their work with the organization with a public appearance at the organization's Halloween party and dance on Oct. 30 in Toronto. "When our children were newly diagnosed we had so many questions and concerns," said Thier. "We want to share our story so other families know they are not alone. Anaphylaxis Canada is there for them. We also want to offer a bit of insight to the broader community about the seriousness of food allergies and the role everyone can play in keeping people with food allergies, especially children, safe."
