Erica Ehm has a website called the Yummy Mummy Club, and on it there's a good article about her daughter's allergies called "If Your Child DOESN'T Have Allergies: Read This!"

http://www.yummymummysite.com/index.cfm ... 6915,16916

Someone even wrote in and mentioned my guys' website!! That caught my eye!

Good website! I didn't know Erica had an allergic child.

I vaguely remember briefly meeting Erica years ago. She was an acquaintance of my friend's in CEGEP, in Montreal. Small world.

And Epimen are brilliant! :D

Karen, The person who mentioned your site is Samantha Yaffe, a writer and former editor of Playback magazine. Sam's about to start writing a web column for this site; it's part of a new Columns page that we hope to have finished and up by next week.

Nicole - btw, AL featured Erica and her children in our Fall 2005 issue. That's the one with the Special Report on Schools & Allergies on the cover.

cheers, Gwen

That issue was before we got thrown into this strange allergy world, back in February... :wink:

Ahh, didn't realize you were that new to it.

At least the good news is that the people in the allergy community are really nice!
