I just thought I'd share this. I thought they did a good job and it was an informative segment. There was much more that they covered on the actual show than is stated in the article, but it gives a brief outline. I think it's great that she is going to medical school to help others with this condition. I really feel that the future is bright for our kids (and their kids someday) because of people like this who had so suffer for so long and want to make sure that no one else has to. It didn't really give any new information, but I always like to see stories like this that bring more attention to gluten intolerance and can educate people who don't know anything about it.

Here is the link to the ariticle

Thanks for the tip on the article. Forwarded it on to family members who don't seem to understand.
