My daughter was diagnosed in February 2011. NFCA has been a great resource for our entire family. I love all the information available on their website, it's really the place to find any answer to questions about celiac disease.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Understanding celiac disease the effects short term and long term. How to care for a child with Celiac's.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none

NFCA has been a wonderful resource for me even when I was on the path to being diagnosed with Celiac. The strides they are making in providing new and updated information to myself, and others is invaluable. I am constantly referring others I come across to this site as the "go-to" place for any information on the disease itself and going gluten-free.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

discovering foods with hidden glutens, finding restaurants with gluten free menus, and finding up-to-date information I could take to my Dr who had an extremely old-school view on Celiac disease.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

the only thing I would change is to be more vocal on the Celiac awareness months/days. I receive e-mails, but I see no events say on the News or in Newspapers (at least in BC and AB).
