Boy who can only eat peaches.

ISLAMABAD:A two-year-old boy named Micah Gabriel Masson Lopez from Montreal, Canada is suffering from a serious condition called food-protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), which causes a severe allergy to virtually any food other than peaches.

According to a private news channel Micah spends every day of his life in pain and visits nine different specialists every month that cost the parents a hefty amount.

He can't eat them from frozen, nor canned nor dried because they may contain additives.The trouble is, fresh, organic peaches aren't always plentiful, nor are they cheap.

Moreover, Micah's parents find it difficult to guarantee a steady supply of peaches which are difficult to find off-season in Quebec. The parents have now launched a crowd funding campaign to raise money that will help them with all the expenses.
