I am reaching out to support groups to ask for help in getting peanuts banned from Children's Mercy Allergy Clinic.
Please SIGN and SHARE my petition to get Children's Mercy Allergy Clinic to stop allowing peanuts and peanut products to be eaten in the Allergy Clinic waiting area.
My two-year-old son has a severe peanut allergy. Even though peanuts are known to be deadly, his allergist allows people to eat peanuts and peanut products while sitting right next to him in the allergy clinic. I tried to get this stopped, but I was told that any kind of food ban would be "inconvenient" to the other patients.
Please show your support for my son, and all of the other peanut allergy sufferers who are forced to wait at the allergist's office in fear, by signing my petition.
Thank you!

That's horrible. My allergist does not allow any food or drink in his waiting room. I would consider finding a new allergist and let them know why you are leaving.
