Making Allergy History

The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation

We all know, love or are someone with food allergy. With over 3 million people living with food allergies in the UK, The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation has made a national breakthrough difference in under 3 years since being created.

Nadim and Tanya Ednan-Laperouse created ‘Natasha’s Foundation’ as a legacy to their daughter Natasha, who tragically died in 2016 of a severe anaphylactic reaction to a sandwich that was not labelled with the allergens it contained. Many of you will know her story from the international media coverage of her avoidable death. Founded with the vision of making allergy history, The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation is dedicated to preventing and eradicating allergic disease, starting with food allergy, creating a world that is safe for all individuals. From the world first change in legislation of ‘Natasha’s Law’ implemented in October 2021 to the launch of the ‘Natasha Clinical Trial’ in May 2022 to enable a first treatment for food allergy to be made available upon the NHS, Natasha’s Foundation is making allergy history. It has brought food allergy out of the darkness of a private tragedy to increase inclusion and respect for this life- threatening disease affecting millions.
