Like most eight year olds, Riley Mers enjoyed going to the park to play. Unfortunately, one day a peanut shell slipped into her sandal leaving a permanent scar. Riley Mers is so severely allergic to peanuts that she can break out with hives or experience breathing difficulties by simply inhaling peanut oils/residue that cannot be detected by the human nose. Sherry Mers, Riley’s mother , constantly had to bring her daughter to the emergency room for medical attention. Riley has already figured out that she doesn’t enjoy hospitals or the gowns they provide her when she visits. Thanks to Rock’O, the allergy peanut sniffing dog, Riley’s hospitals visits have stopped completely!
