Thank you for taking our Top 8 Challenge and Good Luck!!!

We're sure you can last one meal or even 24 hours without your favourite food - but can you imagine a LIFE without pizza, cake and chocolate?


After the Challenge...

Did you PASS the Top 8 Challenge?

CONGRATULATIONS!! You have had a window into the life of someone living with an eosinophilic disorder.

Did you find taking the Top 8 Challenge too HARD?

We say well done for even trying - it isn't easy... we don't blame you, people with EGID wouldn't avoid these foods either if they didn't have to!

Share your challenge experience with us!

This challenge is also about raising AWARENESS for eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders so please tell people what you are doing and why! Use the hashtag #top8challenge on your social media and visit our facebook page and post a pic of your top 8 free meal of the day!
