Very interesting article!

With the financial world in such turmoil right now, it's nice to see someone thriving! Unlike banks who charge fees for every little service, some drug companies give back in the form of funding research, providing free trainers, samples for Dr.s to give out and coupons. (Ever get a free sample from the bank?)

And in addition, think of how many epipens each family buys, only to have them expire. We've had at least 15 expired ones and my kids are only young.
