Ok- Why are you on the PEANUTALLERGY.com website if you are totally against what this website is for? I would like to ask you politely to leave the board if you do not have anything helpful to say.
As far as our topic goes. Thank you for all of the feedback. I am volunteering on a food allergy walk a thon committee. Once we get past July I will really be able to sit down and work out a plan. Are any of you in Texas? I'm not sure how to hit this at a national level, but I'm positive with God we can do it!
Let me know if yall have any ideas.
Thanks for all of your POSITIVE comments. I look forward to saving our kids with yall!

Well maybe the best way is not to hit it nationally since hospitals are independently owned and operated and laws take years but just to write letters to the hospitals in each of our respective areas. I just wrote a letter to a small business and had outstanding results. (see my post under take action entitled letter to local business). We can do A LOT of good just by educating others. Maybe we are too quick to judge when we assume others are putting our children in harm's way because they don't care or are insensitive. Many times they just don't have the info. Let's put a campaign together, write a 'common letter' with info regarding your son's reaction and each send it to a few local hospitals in our areas. When we're ready we can post on the main discussion board asking other's to do the same. Can you take a stab at the letter with info about your son? It will give it a much more real, personal touch.

Trav's Mom, I also live in the Houston area and use the same hospitals--so could help out for this area. Email me offline.

I had the same eye bugging reaction! Those are the attitudes that I am most fearful of, I can't understand why they don't understand that these allergies are LIFE-THREATENING! I am a summer camp counselor and I have several campers with severe peanut allergies (including my own brother), and when we tell parents that we are a peanut free camp they become livid! I have heard every excuse in the book; it is the only thing their child will eat, they can only afford to buy peanut butter etc.
It blows my mind sometimes. What I would like to do is find an information brochure for parents, explaining how severe allergic reactions can be. I would also like to find out how to stop venders from putting peanut products in machines at schools, parks and rec. departments. Any advice is greatly appreciated! I live in MA!
Thank You!
