My name is Kelly Fox, I am 37, and live in VA. I struggle to live gluten free, as we all do, and find an open mind, humor, and a willingness to experiment are what keep me going! If life is a box of chocolates, did everyone check the label to make sure there is no gluten added?
I have compiled some great links for everyone to read over, that are chock full of statistics. The saddest one is that 1 in every 22 people have this disease if someone in their family has it, and 1 in 133 people without a family history have Celiac, and yet no one knows about it? How is this possible?

Please spread the word today, blog, facebook, twitter, hang a billboard, hire an sky writer, put it on a hot air ballon, put a sign on your dog, write it in the sand, squirt on your plate with mustard, whatever it takes. Let's not run screaming through crowds naked with it painted on our bodies, that would be extravagantly silly, but tell someone who may not know about it.
