Allergic Condition Transforms Teen from Reality TV to Role Model

People recognize Zeke Angel as the reality show teenager who is "allergic to everything." He was on an MTV "True Life" show because he wanted people to understand what it's like to live with eosinophilic esophagitis, an allergic inflammatory condition. Living with it means he has a restricted diet, and for the last four years, he has seen specialists at Cincinnati Children's at the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders for treatment. Today, he wants to be a role model to help others. And he wants to help find a cure.
