My 2010 Celiac Campaign Has Begun.

Recommended Posts

Well, I lost my mom to intestinal cancer last October. After doing some research I found celiac disease. Played it safe and had my daughter tested and she came back positive. Mine came back negative but many of my symptoms growing up were exactly like my mom and daughter. We are all going gluten free and I'm on a mission to inform as many people as I can. I work at the News paper and just wrote a column on celiac disease and I'm running a celiac disease awareness campaign on my racecar and race site. I don't think I'm allowed to show you the site but it offers race fans information on celiac disease as well. Here's a couple photos of me and my car. Our slogan for 2010: "Not knowing doesn't cut it."

Thanks for what you are doing. Making others aware can go a long way in helping many figure out what is wrong with them, while hopefully getting the general public aware and more understanding of what this is all about.

Found your website. I know you are kind of a haul from Kansas City but do you ever race your modified at Lakeside? I'll come cheer for you. I think this is great.

Daughter is adorable, too.

tis true. Sometimes you need a gentle nudge to head yourself in the right direction, and other times you need to be chucked off a cliff. :blink: :blink:

survived the fall, now working on making things better.

I just checked out your website -- you've got a nice write-up on Celiac on there, and the story is very much like my own family's. I'm not too far from you -- maybe someday I'll see you race. :)

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
