Grace’s Story:

Hi my name is Grace Sorem, I am 11 years old and I am living with Fructose Malabsorption. The hardest thing is going to friend’s birthday parties or team parties/celebrations. It is very tempting to want to have a piece of cake or ice cream that you can not have. But, my family and I have solved this problem in two ways.

  1. My job is to say, “I am allergic to that” (it is important not to give to many details, just keep it simple).
  2. Also my mom has helped me fix it by always having a treat that is one of my favorites at home waiting for me.

So, in conclusion to all the other kids living with this, it is not the end of the world when you can’t have cake or ice cream at a birthday party. Instead of it being the end of the world it is just a chance for you to have a special treat at your own house that is special to you.


Two of Grace's favorite treats are featured on our site: Homemade Peanut Butter Cups and Safe Chocolate Candy Cookies.
