Training continues on how to use a potentially life-saving EpiPen. It's part of Dillon's Law, which was created in honor of a teen, Dillon Mueller, who died from an undiagnosed bee sting allergy.

Dillon’s mother, Angel Mueller, says 2,000 people have been trained on how to use an EpiPen. Dillon's law is named in honor of Dillon Mueller. The 18-year-old from Mishicot died in 2014. 

His mom says he was unconscious 10 minutes after the sting but would have been saved if someone had an EpiPen. So now, she trains people on how to use EpiPens.

"Having trained all those people make my life into the future worthwhile. Our saying is: ‘We're doing it for Dillon’,” says Angel Mueller. “As I think about those last few moments of him, not being able to breathe, I said to myself, I am going to change this, and I am going to do it for him."

Dillon's Law allows people with the training to carry EpiPen auto injectors and use them in the case of an allergic reaction.
