Thomas Silvera and Dina Hawthorne-Silvera’s 3-year-old son, Elijah tragically passed away after he had an anaphylactic reaction to a grilled cheese sandwich at his daycare.
On this episode of WorldAbout, Grace sit’s down with Thomas, Co-Founder of the Elijah-Alavi Foundation, and discusses how losing their son to anaphylaxis has put them on a path of ensuring that no other family has to go through what his family experienced. “It shouldn’t take a tragedy to create change. Elijah, he did not die in vain. His echo and his words, rang through each and every one of us.”
Their inspiring advocacy has already resulted in change. #elijahsecho #elijahslaw
