I live with my 5 year old PA daughter in Franklin Township in Warren County, just north of the Hunterdon line. In fact, our previous address was just up the road from you in Little York. I'm not looking for a support group experience per se at this time, but I'd be happy to speak with you. My email address is: [email]kschriever@chubb.com[/email].

Is there anyone in Blair/Centre/Huntingdon counties? I live near Altoona. I checked with both hospitals in Altoona as well as my pediatrician. The all said that they know of NO support groups in this area. I would love to find other parents of PA kids in this area. My son is almost ready for pre-school and I wish I could talk to someone who is going through or has gone through the same thing. My e-mail addresses are [email]amba95@aol.com[/email] or [email]BishopA@Metrocall.com[/email]

I am looking for a food allergy support group in the Lehigh Valley area....I live in Coopersburg, between Bethlehem and Quakertown. Any info would be appreciated!

On Nov 26, 2000

I am a 32 year old woman who has had PA ever since I was five years old. This website is a blessing for all of us who suffer with a severe food allergy. I have known for the longest time that I was certainly not alone in this fight, but it's so incredibly comforting to read all your messages and completely relate to what you are going through. I live in Easton, PA (just across the border from NJ) and I am looking for a support group in the Lehigh Valley / Philly area. I'm only an hour away from Doylestown. Please let me know when your meetings are. I'd love to join you. Thank you again for this wonderful site. Have a safe and wonderful holiday season!

Hey, I live in Monroeville, knowing this is well after you posted, but let me know if you need help in the area of schools, etc. Have some decent success in that area plus I work in special education, so that doesn't hurt to know our rights.

Does anyone live in the Poconos? More specifically the Brodheadsville/Saylorsburg area that is interested in forming a support group. I'm looking for other young children so my son won't feel so alone. He's 4 1/2. I also know of a 5-year old and a 6-year old in this area. Maybe their parents would be interested too.

Ryan's Mom My son is 3 yrs old with a peanut allergy. I'm about 45mins from you. Any luck finding a support group in the area??

On Jun 4, 2001

Not yet, however another mom I know with a PA daughter in first grade has been a big proponent for forming a support group within our local elementary school. She is a former guidance counselor and has expertise in this area. I forgot to ask her this past weekend if her efforts have been successful in getting something like this off the ground. If would be nice to have something locally for more kids, though.

I plan on asking her soon about this.

On Jun 4, 2001

I am also in Doylestown and am very interested!
