MISHICOT (WLUK) -- Mishicot High School holds special significance to the Mueller's.

It's where their son Dillon graduated, and it's also where they said their last goodbyes.

"We have gone from tragedy to having Dillon's wake right here, in this gym, to victory having Dillon's law signed in this gym," said Angel Mueller, Dillon's mother.

In 2014, Dillon Mueller passed away from anaphylactic shock caused by a bee sting.

At the time, he was stung, no one around including the first responders had an EpiPen, which are used to treat severe allergic reactions.

"Save lives of the undiagnosed individual, because they don't know they're allergic," explained Mueller.

Putting pen to paper Monday. Gov. Walker signed into effect 'Dillon's Law', which will allow trained individuals to carry EpiPens.

The Mueller's have been working with State Rep. Andre Jacque, (R-De Pere).

"It's a common-sense modification," said Jacque.

Prior to the law, the devices were only available with a prescription or at an accredited organization.

"If you have the training, we want to make it easier for you to be able to carry EpiPen with you out in the community, to be able to administer a lifesaving response," Jacque told Fox 11.

Looking ahead, the Muellers say Dillon's legacy will live on helping to save lives.

"That's what it means to me, nobody else must go through this, what we had to go through," said George, Dillon's Father.
