Mom/Son with CF Have a Chance to Win- Please Vote!

Hi there, My son, with CF, now 18, had always received unhelpful nutritional advice from our CF docs. Through the years, I have found what works for him and helped him be a healthy weight (no dairy, good fats, and more). from this journey, we have developed dairy/gluten/soy free brownies packed with nutrient dense hemp that have been a huge hit and we have made it into a business, helping others with food allergies have good, healthy treats to enjoy. we are now in the running to win $100,000 from Chase. I am sure everybody out there can relate to how needed that money is. I have raised my son alone, ex-husband never paid any child support (tried to enforce, he just keeps hiding), been on food stamps. I have a masters degree in counseling, but as you all know, finding positions that support you needing time off regularly for a sick child are difficult to find. very importantly, we are donating 3% of our profits to the CF Foundation!

I was attending a 50th birthday party for a friend of mine, when I struck up a conversation with someone I had never met. The conversation, of course, was with a woman who seemed genuinely interested in my quest to make air travel safer for those with food allergies. I told her how my family often receives dirty looks from other passengers when we pre-board a plane to wipe down the area for nut residue. I discussed how some people have laughed when asked not to open nut containers in the confined environment of an airplane. It is often hard to convey the seriousness of a life-threatening food allergy because it is a mostly...

Abstract Major advances in the conduct of pediatric practice have been reported in the Italian Journal of Pediatrics in 2014. This review highlights developments in allergy, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, neonatology, nutrition, oncology and respiratory tract illnesses. Investigations endorse a need to better educate guardians and improve nutritional management in food allergy. Management of hyperbilirubinemia in neonates and of bronchiolitis have been improved by position statements of scientific societies. Novel treatments for infant colic and inflammatory bowel diseases have emerged. Studies suggest th...

Many CF warriors experience chronic headaches. I have not yet heard from any doctors a clear and reasonable explanation as to why we have the headaches. My suspicion is that CF is not directly the cause of the headaches, but all the stuff we do and go through as a result of CF can point to several culprits. All I can contribute to this issue is my own experience. I have gone through periods of time with continuous headaches (if I don’t medicate the headache) and periods of time with absolutely no headaches. By the process of elimination, I have come to some conclusions. Due to CF causing a rapid depletion of vitamins...

About 5 years ago I started having very loose stools, stopped absorbing my food and had a burning irritated stomach. I started noticing a correlation with milk and eventually figured out that I had a dairy allergy. Once I cut dairy out of my diet the burning in my stomach went away, I began absorbing my food again and everything went back to normal. Since then I have slowly but surely become allergic to just about all foods including rice, soy, chicken/egg, beef, pork, fish/seafood, wheat, nuts, potatoes etc. I am basically living on two foods now, corn and quinoa. I can also have some green vegetables such as broccoli, ...
