Decisions are being made right now in Washington that could impact the timeline to find a cure for life-threatening food allergies.

The federal government must increase funding for food allergy research. Several therapies that could eventually lead to a cure are showing great promise, and our government officials must commit the resources needed to see these through.

Your elected officials need to know:
Federal funding of food allergy research is important to you -- their constituents.

Please ... take a quick moment and write your elected officials today. It's so easy:
1. Click here.
2. Fill in your name, e-mail and address.

3. Edit the letter as you wish, then click "send message."

Isn't this American?

I don't know what good this will do. I don't think we carry any weight there.

Well, I guess better they spend their $ rather than us ours. In the meantime, I will continue to rattle Canadian federal and provincial chains on protection and awareness.

We have many American members.
We also stand to benefit from research and public education in the USA.
