MOCHA (Mothers of Children Having Allergies) is a group of parents sharing information and supporting each other. MOCHA started in Chicago, yet our members are from around the United States. Members of MOCHA know how frightening it can be to learn that your child has been diagnosed with severe, often life-threatening allergies. Rest assured, you are not alone! We’ve all been there, and that’s why we formed this support group – to give you tips for dealing with the day-to-day aspects of managing food allergies and to help you cope with the stress that goes along with it. MOCHA realizes that every family’s situation is unique, but we can offer practical, general, non-medical advice that has worked for us. Through our meetings, speakers, and informal get-togethers, MOCHA offers support, education, and – best of all – friendship, to help make managing your child’s food allergies just a little bit easier.
MOCHA’s mission is to help parents of children who suffer from food allergies. By providing information and opportunities, we aim to make living with allergies just a little bit easier. We at MOCHA believe that it’s our job as parents to give our children the education, encouragement, experience and enthusiasm to get out into the world and safely live their lives to the fullest.
Kill 'em with Kindness!!
