In The News

A reporter for the St. Joseph Press called last week and asked me some questions about living with food allergies for an article she was writting. The article was published today: http://www.stjoenews.net/news/2009/mar/31/allergies-change-everything/?diem

Also, Avery received her "Food Allergy News for Kids" last night and her picture and comments were included. She is very excited to show her friends at school. FAAN doesn't include the Newsletter on their Website so I took a picture of it.

Peanut Sniffing Dogs

One of our group members has become involved with (and adopted a dog from) an organization called, "Angel Service Dogs" that provides and trains dogs to respond to and alert to the scent of a particular allergen. They have been featured on several national broadcasts including NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.

It is my hope that once our member's dog has completed his training, she will bring it to one of our meetings so we can see him in action!

Next Meeting!

We meet periodically in the evenings at Panera Bread in Liberty (8580 Church Rd).
