Living with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)

Remington Walls, a 19-year-old sophomore at Valdosta State University in GA talks about living with a chronic, allergic inflammatory disease known as eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and can only consume nutritional formulas.

At the age of four, Remington Walls was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. The heartbreaking diagnosis meant Remington would be unable to eat or drink regular food, maybe for the rest of his life. The food that gives the rest of us nourishment was slowly destroying Remington’s esophagus. Nevertheless, Remington has overcome impossible odds to live unencumbered by a feeding tube, graduate high school, become an Allstar baseball player, and enjoy life like any other young adult. His parents have been his biggest supporters, and today, the family is working to change legislation to support others in the same situation.
