My little Simon has a peanut allergy, and the older he gets, the harder it is to make sure we always have two EpiPens with him at all times.
He goes to preschool. He goes to his grandma’s house. He’s with Even Steven. He’s with me.
And at two years old, he can’t be responsible for his own EpiPens. Which has meant a lot of remembering to grab them before we walk out the door, bringing them to preschool, taking them home from preschool, getting them out of my purse… you get the idea.
If you have kids with allergies, then you know that the co-pay alone for EpiPens can be expensive (we pay about $100), so it’s not always as simple as paying for as many EpiPens as you need. Especially when they expire every year.
But thanks to my neighbor for telling me this little secret, we now have enough EpiPens to leave a set at preschool, a set at grandma’s house, a set for home and a set for my purse.
And we got them all free!
Yes – I said free. And you can get free EpiPens too!
