(Taken from http://www.angelfire.com/mi/FAST/ ... come and visit us, it's a great site!)

I'll post more details on how to order and the cost as soon as we finalize the last few details, but it should be available in the next week or so.

Food Allergy Survivors Together Journal

With participation from nearly two-dozen individuals, this incredibly innovative book contains a little bit of everything (it has to, at 350 pages!). You'll find articles, cooking tips, extracurricular activity suggestions, humor, jokes and cartoons, photographs, profiles of people with allergies, over 30 recipes, stories and a play for children, traveling tips, and much more. The information in the book is new and unique. Best of all, the Journal is informal and uplifting, not heavy and weighty as health literature can tend to be. The information within is geared toward (and contributed by) everyone touched by food allergies, including children with allergies, adults with allergies, caretakers, and friends. You will refer to this book again and again. Our group strongly suggests you get more than one--you will want to share this with your friends, family, and local library.

For all canadians that hesitate to buy the book because it comes from the US, I just wanted to mention that the real canadian cost (exchange rate, shipping and taxes included) is between 27-32$ per book depending on exchange rates and number of copies ordered. I takes exactly 2 weeks to recieve the book after you place the order.

Hope some of you can benefit from the experiences we decided to share in the book.

My mistake, I added a period after the address... Now it works fine.
