Hi there, I’m Matt, a co-founder of Backstop food allergy virtual care. I’m a former kid, and now an adult, living with food allergies. I’m so glad you’re here.

Consider me your personal concierge for navigating your family’s food allergy journey. You can chat with me here at any time for help with absolutely anything related to raising a kid with food allergies.

My team and I have chatted with thousands of families with food allergies just like yours, and have helped with so many different topics, including:

  • Finding the tools to live life with more confidence and less worry, stress and anxiety.
  • How to handle daycare, school, extracurricular activities, and social situations with their child.
  • Assistance finding qualified, compassionate food allergy specialists who lead with empathy.
  • Connecting parents with other parents of food allergy families to make you not feel so alone in this journey.
  • Any other questions you need answers to, outside the doctor’s office.

Ready to get started? I’m here to help, every step of the way.
