My Story…

This summer marks the 1st anniversary of my daughter's Celiac Disease diagnosis. When we left the doctor's office that day I felt relieved to have an explanation for her symptoms but I also felt overwhelmed. What does this mama bear do now? The Canadian Celiac Association came to the rescue! We received the Growing up Celiac workbook and we were welcomed into the supportive CCA FB community. When we made our first trip to the grocery store I felt reassured knowing that I could trust the ingredients and the CCA certified labels. As time passed we faced new challenges - how do we avoid cross contamination in our home? How do I support my daughter at social gatherings in an inclusive and safe way? Where can we dine out? The CCA website had the answers. I am so thankful for the Canadian Celiac Association because it has given me the confidence and knowledge needed to best support my daughter's health.
