We can’t even imagine what this must be like.

Alex Visker is 19 years old and suffers from an allergy you’ve probably never heard of before.

The recent high school graduate had suffered from a range of ailments, including nausea, stomach pain, headaches, sudden drops in blood pressure, and hives for most of his life, but when his symptoms got worse in the fifth grade, doctors discovered that Alex was allergic to food.

Yes, all food.

His genetic condition makes him unable to stomach any solid food without becoming sick, so he’s forced to get his nutrients through a combination of medications and dietary formulas.

But the most amazing part of this story isn’t Alex’s condition… it’s his positive outlook on life!

“[It’s] hard because I remember what food tastes like. The sight of food and the smell of food ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ especially something I used to love ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ can make me crave it.

Everything in our society revolves around food, but I’ve learned to live with it. I remember what it tastes like. And that will have to be enough.”

So mature at such a young age!

Alex’s parents Kevin and Jodie Visker have set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for their son’s college education since their $7,000 per month medical bills are simply too outrageous.

Way to be an inspiration for everyone, Alex!
