GENERAL
My son was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. He is 13. It is quite challenging and extremely frustrating trying to find food for him to eat because of the labeling on the food items. I find myself in the supermarket calling the company to get help with their ingredients to find out if their product is gluten free or not.

Please support me and my family, along with the millions of other people in the United States that have this disease. This is a devastating disease that attacts your intestines and can lead to different stomach cancers if left untreated or diagnosed. Please support the celiac foundation with gluten free food labeling!

Thank you very much for your assistance with regards to this matter.
