Let's get Oprah involved in help us with our battle with deadly peanut allergy. She is a powerful source of media. We need more public awareness, vaccine funding and support.
Until the vaccine is found, we will continue to live in fear everyday. WE NEED THOSE VACCINES. I've already emailed her to do a segment on deadly food allergies and how we are all desparately waiting for the vaccine. We live in a country where medical research far surpassses any other country in the world. I am positive that these scientist are capable of producing a vaccine. They just don't have the incentive or the impetus to get it done quickly.
Let's join forces and get these vaccines out on the market.

Dear Scaredtodeath,
I think we all hope and pray that a vaccine or remedy will be found. I just don't agree that it is for lack of trying. My son is a patient of Dr. Sampson and I have the utmost respect for him. This is his life's work and I know how important it is for him to find a cure.

Contacting Oprah comes up a lot. I was curious so I did a search - posters at pa.com has been asking her to do a show since 1999. Here are some related threads

Hopefully, one of these days the volume of food allergy e-mail will be noticed.

We'll just have to keep at it, I guess! Thanks for looking into all the past threads.

You know, many of us have been emailing for years with no success. What about a "petition"? Just a thought. Perhaps we could gather a list of "signatures" of those who would be interested in seeing a show on food allergies. It would be terribly time consuming to forward an actual letter around, but maybe we could set up something where someone collected names & email addresses and then forwarded them in one big package by mail, rather than trying to get attention through individual emails. Maybe if the crew at Oprah saw that there was indeed a large amount of interest in the topic, they would be more willing to explore the idea? I don't know, just a wild thought...
