I am very interested in joining a parents' support group for those of us with children with PA. If anyone knows of any in N.J. or would be interested in starting one, please let me know. Thanks!

YES! I have been interested in starting one in my area (south jersey area). Please contact me off the board if you would like to discuss further, I am not sure where you are located. Thanks!

Are you aware of the Food Allergy Support Group of Monmouth County? I'm in Ocean County, and it's about a 45-minute ride for me, so I haven't been able to attend meetings since they're on Monday evenings. But I stay on their mailing list. What southern NJ county are you in?

It looks like I'm the only one in northern N.J. so far. But I would be interested in getting onto the list for the newsletter for the group in monmouth county if that is possible.

Caroline's mom - I'll get the Monmouth Support Group information for you. I don't have it handy now. But I'm positive there is a northern NJ support group. There's a woman on these boards who appeared on CN8 on cable at one point (my mother taped it for me, she's in Essex County) who's in northern NJ. Can't remember her name. I'll see what I can find out for you. Maybe the Monmouth Group knows of other groups in the state.

If you email me, I can give you the leader's telephone number. She's really helpful.

By the way I see you're in Verona! My husband's from West Caldwell and used to work in Verona. Small world!

Thanks so much ACBaay and Kathy L. for the info. Sorry it took me so long to reply but I haven't been at my computer much lately. I really appreciate the help!
KathyL. it really is a small world or state at least!!! Too bad you guys aren't still in the Caldwell area. I haven't found too many other parents/kids in the same situation as we are. Thanks again.
