Hi All,
Here is a link to our newsletter with the very sad story of Andrew Smith: [url="http://tinyurl.com/57w9rg"]http://tinyurl.com/57w9rg[/url]

His mother Pam only wants to help others with his story. She feels that is what Andrew would have wanted. Hopefully, the warning will help others.

Take care,
Gina

Thank you for sharing. I printed the story to share with family. I think they don't understand the seriousness of the issue. \
My son is only 19 months old and has had two reactions, one just from skin contact and the other from eating. Yet the blood work says he has a low # on the allergy test for peanuts. Very scary.

I just cried and cried reading it. So very sad. I'm sure her story of her wonderful son will touch many and help raise awareness. So sad.

That is so sad. I cried too when I read it, and I will pass it on to my mother in law. She is a wonderful grandmother, but just doesn't understand how serious a peanut allergy can be.
Thank you so much for sharing her story. It is heartrending.
