I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease just about eight years ago in January 2006. Things have come a long way in the past eight years…Celiac Disease is on the radar of more doctors, gluten-free foods are much improved and most people have at least heard of gluten, the gluten-free diet and/or Celiac Disease.
I started writing my own blog, Gluten-Free is Life, in August 2008 as a way to keep family members in the loop about foods that were safe for Jon and me to eat. I began writing for Celiac-Disease.com in January 2010, sharing my knowledge of feeding a gluten-free school-age child. I make it a priority to educate as many people as possible about all things Celiac-Disease and the gluten-free diet. For this reason, I am thrilled to share information about the NFCA’s newest campaign, “Take the Pledge”.
Why Should You Take the Pledge?
Everyone has their own personal reason for taking the Pledge. Whatever your reason, NFCA will be here to help you keep your Pledge commitment. We’ll check in with you throughout 2014 to learn more about your progress and provide you with the resources you need.
NFCA encourages you to Take the Pledge!
When you fill out the Pledge form below, you promise to:
- The gluten-free diet is not a fad. We know this, you know this – it’s a treatment that’s here to stay.
- Celiac disease is not a food allergy. Let’s take this opportunity to set the record straight!
- We can work together to amplify our voice to raise awareness of gluten-related disorders.
- We are in the driver’s seat when it comes to managing our own health.
- You play a key role in helping family members understand their risk for this genetic autoimmune disease.
- 83% of people with celiac disease remain undiagnosed. We have the power to change that by sharing our personal stories and raising awareness of the signs and symptoms.
This campaign breaks down what I have been working on here and on my own blog for the past several years. With the power of the NFCA, I know that 2014 is destined to be a great year for those with Celiac Disease or following a gluten-free diet. Will you join me and “Take the Pledge”?
