Allergic Girl, on Please Don’t Pass the Nuts:

Keep on keepin’ on.  We need truth in food preparation, even GMOs!!  I am so fired up about Frankenfoods right now.

Food Allergy Queen:

Your blog is awesome!

Sorry I am blogspot-challenged today.  I don’t know what the deal is, but google has it out for me, I think.  Giving me t-rubble!

To all who send me notes, comments, or who bump into me online: I am sorry for not being a better “reciprocal” blog reader and commentor.  I am outright swamped.

Today I took a few minutes and actually READ a few allergy blogs for the first time in months.  It was awesome.  I have missed it.  Being a full-time mom again is really all-consuming, what can I say?

I highly recommend the above two blogs!

Dear allergy parents and friends,

Please take moment to look at the attached zipcode list. If you live within one of these zipcodes, please read on. If you know someone who does, please take a moment to FORWARD this. It’s really important for our children.
Eleven million American families like yours are impacted by food allergies.  Emergency room visits are increasing, and the number of children with peanut allergies doubled in just five years!

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Contact Rep. John Murtha — and ask him to increase federal funding for food allergy research, so we can save children’s lives.   Let him know:

Food Allergies afflict millions of American families, and the problem is growing.

There are no medications to cure or control food allergies — but scientists believe we can find a cure in less than 10 years with proper funding.

Congress must increase federal funding for food allergy research and help save children’s lives.

E-Mail Congressman Murtha at http://www.house.gov/murtha/write.shtml … or at:

647 Main St, Suite 401
Johnstown, PA 15901
(814) 535-2642 — Phone
(814) 539-6229 — Fax

Use the attached letter, include your own experiences, or write your own letter or email.  Your voice WILL make a difference. If you won’t do it for your own child, grandchild, niece, nephew, friend, who will?

Please take the time to do it now!

Sincerely,

Gina Clowes

PS Remember to forward this email!   Every letter counts.

Next AllergyMoms meeting is June 8th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Panera in Cranberry Twp. Please come and share with us that you’ve done your part! :o)

(Email me if you’d like the list of zip codes and form letters sent to you.)
