I am just wondering if there are any parents from the Edmonton area. I am from Leduc and don't know another parent with an allergic child. I would really like to talk to some parents from my area to share advice, support, etc.

Laura,
I would love to meet with another parent. I live in Edmonton and am very surprised that there is not a formal group to meet. I have an email from another parent in Spruce Grove who would also be interested in meeting other parents. Perhaps we could arrange this.
Let me know if you are interested.
Stephanie

If you guys ever want to set up your own support group, Anaphylaxis Canada will help out.

Go to http://www.anaphylaxis.ca/content/programs/services_support.asp for details.

There are a lot of support groups out there, and we leaders can provide you with some help if you need it (ideas for meetings, tips on how to get started, etc.).

I've been the leader of the Ottawa Anaphylaxis Support Group for two years now and it's been a very rewarding experience. You definitely learn a lot and meet a lot of great people through groups.

Just a thought!

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for replying to my message. I would certainly like to meet. I too have looked for a "support group" to join. How old is your child? I have 3 1/2 year old girl (milk allergies) and a 22 month old.

Let me know if the other parent is interested and we can set something up.

Laura

Laura,
I have two sons just about two and a four year old. I can't find the email from the woman is Spruce Grove. Perhaps we could get together on our own. Are you at home during the day? I work part time Tues, Wed, and Thurs. PErhaps we could meet at an indoor playground on the south side. Let me know.
Stephanie
