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.

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.

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is an amazing organization which fulfills the needs of anyone in search of accurate, up to date information pertaining to celiac disease and gluten intolerance. The NFAC is completely dedicated to improving the quality of life for celiac persons by spreading awareness throughout the nation. Their website is filled with a wide range of information and very user friendly. The NFAC is highly regarded by the celiac community and others with food allergies including myself!
