My mom panicked in a frenzy, dialed 9-1-1, and in a short period of time, I found out life-changing news: I was one of the unlucky 3 million people to be diagnosed with having a fatal peanut allergy.

It was running outside after lunch to the playground and climbing up the spider; making it to the peak of what felt like Mount Everest.
