Iris Shamus, founder and CEO of AllerMates, started the company after being inspired by her son, Ben’s, food allergies. She wanted to find a way to teach him about his health concerns in a way that was fun and non-intimidating. So, she drew up a few allergy-related characters, now known as the AllerMates gang, and wrote funny stories and poems about them. When she realized how much her son loved the characters and how well it helped him understand his allergies, she knew she had to introduce it to kids everywhere, and AllerMates was born.
Now, AllerMates has grown into a line of medical alert bracelets, medicine bags, lunch bags, activity books, and more, all designed to keep kids with food allergies safe with a smile on their faces! Together, Iris and the AllerMates community work to raise awareness and keep kids with food allergies free from harm!
