I am a 44 year old single mother of two teenage boys. In September of 2007, my oldest son Ryan, was diagnosed with Celiac disease. In support of Ryan, I too began a diet free from gluten.

While it hasn't been completely debilitating, it has made me make choices in my life that were unfavorable. The gluten-free lifestyle has given me my purpose in life.
