Florida family turning tragedy into awareness about deadly food allergies

"WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Merrill and Bobby Debbs, of West Palm Beach, had to bury their 11-year-old son Oakley three months ago.

“When I would say good night to him, I would say, ‘Goodnight cute boy,’ and he’d say, ‘Goodnight cute mommy,’” said Merrill Debbs.

Oakley, a freckled faced, blonde haired athletic straight A student, had asthma his entire life, and he also had a food allergy. It was on a family Thanksgiving vacation where a cake was delivered to their home with no ingredient label. Oakley took a bite and did not realize nuts were in the cake."
