Send me your thoughts via email at allergyware@gmail.com, in text or audio, or call me at 1-888-65-GCAST, 2255537532 (that spells “Call Leslea”), pin #1111. Or, you can just click “comments” and leave me a note right here! Your choices are endless, aren’t they?

I’m going to be interviewed for comments on the topic, so of course I am always interested not just in what *I* think, but what other allergy parents think, as well.
