After 5 years of talking about it I am going to do IT. For the past 5 years many of the people in Kingston whom I have spoke with who have children with peanut and nut allergies have been saying we need a support group. Our 1st meeting will be November 24th(Wed.)1999 at The Ongwanada Resource Centre on Portsmouth Ave. Kingston, ON.

Anyone know of a support group in Mississauga???

I used to go to the Etobicoke meetings, but would really like to attend one in my own area.

Any Mississaugians out there - maybe we need to make our own???

Kind regards,

Contact the AAIA (Allergy and Asthma Information Association)and they can let you know about local support groups in Canada [url="http://www.aaia.ca"]www.aaia.ca[/url] (click on the AAIA logo on the top right corner of the screen).

It is also a good starting point for many of us who are just beginning to learn.

BARRIE (AND AREA) ONTARIO

I had called the Simcoe County District Public Health Unit a couple of weeks ago to see if they had a nurse that could do a presentation at Jesse's school. They didn't. However, they gave me the names and telephone numbers of two different people to contact that may be of some assistance to me.

The one person I called, Michelle, runs a support group for multiple food allergies, although mostly PA members, in Barrie. Me, being where I am, would still be welcome to attend her meetings. If anyone is interested, please contact me by e-mail and I will provide her telephone number.

I must say, in simply a very short conversation with this woman, she came across as a wonderful, caring, concerned individual. She was of great assistance to me with the question that I had originally called her about.

Her meetings will resume in September on Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. at Sunnypark Children's Centre.

Now, this 42 year old is really kicking herself that she doesn't know how to drive!

Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
