Have any of you been watching Celebrity Apprentice??? Well, I've always been a big Trace Adkins' fan, but did you know that his charity is the FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network)? His daughter, unsure of her age, has several SEVERE, anaphylactic food allergies. I think that this is great for awareness---this topic being on a primetime, popular show.
GO TRACE!!!!!

Yes, and yes! I've been a Trace Adkins fan since way before The Apprentice. His shared experience as a parent and advocate for food allergies just makes me like him more. :) He has handled himself with so much finesse as well. The last episode is coming up. Go Trace.

Trace said his daughter is 6, and has made the many trips to the ER that so many parents here have. I think it is most wonderful to have a such a big name to relate with the allergies that we have all been dealing with for years.

I just got caught up on all my Tivo last night and saw this! How neat! I do wish he had a little more time on there to explain a little more what it means to have food allergies but I'm happy for any coverage, especially coverage a few million people are seeing! I hope he kicks some serious butt too!!!!

Great article! Thanks, Skymom. I love Trace. I got the privelage of seeing him in concert on New Year's Eve in '04. He's such a sincere, genuine guy. He's not bad to look at either----hehe.

I have not watched any of these episodes, nor am I a country music fan, but today when I heard that he was to donate his potential winnings to FAAN, it literally brought tears to my eyes. I will forever be a supporter of this man. GOOD LUCK TRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trace did an awesome job. He should have won! However his integrity made him the winner with me. FAAN should be proud of your great efforts Trace.
