Iris Shamus

Iris Shamus, Israeli-born is a mother of a child with multiple food allergies. She was frustrated by the lack of allergy-related kid-friendly products so she took action and created AllerMates, a new line of bright, fun, whimsical character-driven wristbands, dog tags and lunch boxes that her son would happily embrace. Husband Kenny Shamus and Iris have three children and live in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. To purchase her items go to Walgreens in the seasonal aisle or on-line at www.allermates.com
