Springfield police have set up a charity in honor of one of their colleagues facing brain damage after having an allergic reaction to a bee sting.

Allergic to bees, Ling went into anaphylactic shock and suffered respiratory arrest.

As a result of those breathing problems, Ling has suffered brain damage, the release said, and faces months of therapy.
Hope he's ok.

Truly tragic. Poor guy.

FYI, the new (2011) practice parameter on stinging allergies for U.S. allergists strongly recommends venom immunotherapy aka allergy shots.

If you know anyone with a stinging insect reaction, urge them to look into. It is very effective.
