Devon Carrow was born with eosinophilic esophagitis, an allergic inflammatory disease in which white blood cells build up in the esophagus that makes exposure to common foods such as peanuts, milk and eggs life-threatening. He also has anaphylactic shock syndrome, respiratory distress syndrome and asthma. The major risk of a deadly allergic reaction had prevented him from going to school with other children and forced Devon to be home schooled – that is, until VGo came along.
