APFED
June 25, 2010

My 4 year old daughter has EE. My daughter was failure to thrive before her 1st birthsday. After many tests, pokes, Dr. visits, super sick days----we finally had an answer EE. I said to myself as a new single mother, what in the world is this. I asked many questions to Dr. and family members in the medical field, I then found out about APFED. What a wonderful organization held together by great people. After a few years on an elemental and elimination diet we have become professional label readers and cooler packers. I have met several people through APFED and learned a whole lot about "trials" and "tribulations" in dealing with EE. I have no other children and was the first of my friends to have a child so I do not look at this disease as diificult or hard, I look at this day to day life as normal. I have told my daughter many times God only gives special people that can handle this kind of stuff these diseases. I have learned the most valuable information from the conferences and encourage all families to attend them every year. Good luck to all and God bless.
