Helping to Unite Families

Our mission is to support and enhance the lives of families living with eosinophilic disorders while advocating for those families and educating those around us.

Who we are

The Eosinophilic Family Coalition is a registered 501(c)3 organization with a mission to support and enhance the lives of families living with Eosinophilic Disorders while advocating for these families and educating those around us. We accomplish this through a variety of programs that have a common goal of bringing families together and empowering them to face their challenges head on knowing they have a strong support system backing them.

What is an Eosinophilic Disorder?

Eosinophils are a normal cellular component of the blood and also of certain tissues, including spleen, lymph nodes, thymus, and the submucosal areas of the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and genitourinary tracts. Counts of 0 to 450 eosinophils per cubic millimeter of blood are considered within normal limits. Eosinophilic disorders occur when eosinophils are found in above-normal amounts in various parts of the body.  Eosinophilic disorders are diagnosed according to the location where the levels of eosinophils are elevated.
