Our Story

Hi my name is James Sweet and I'm the founder of AllergyHero. I was impassioned to make AllergyHero by a close friend who is highly allergic to garlic, and almost always forgets to carry his epinephrine auto injector with him. In a number of circumstances sheer luck has kept him from moments of life threatening danger.

After doing some research, I found that there are over 200,000 emergency visits a year due to food induced anaphylaxis. According to a 2012 survey, up to two thirds of anaphylaxis patients don’t carry their recommended epinephrine auto injector with them. To me, these numbers were screaming out for a new solution and specifically one in the form of a resource that could be available to anyone.
