  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I just recieved this email from my Congressman: [Thank you for writing in support of the goals of National Celiac Awareness Month. This is an important issue, and I appreciate your input. Indeed, celiac disease is significantly under diagnosed in this country, though officially nearly 1% of the population suffers from this disease. As noted in your email, the disease is caused by a reaction to gluten proteins that are often found in wheat products. The only effective treatment for celiac disease is a diet completely free of gluten and other gluten products. I agree with you that the public should be educated as to the causes and effects of this disease. I look forward to discussing this resolution with my colleagues, and will keep your thoughts in mind when it comes to a vote. Please feel free to contact me in the future with your thoughts. It is always good to hear from you.] Does anyone have a good response to this letter that I could send as a reply, now that I have my congressman's attention? I'm new to this since my husband and 3 (out of 4) children have just been diagnosed this month. Thank you for your help. WW
