Take the Pledge!

"NFCA encourages you to Take the Pledge!
When you fill out the Pledge form below, you promise to:
  • The gluten-free diet is not a fad.  We know this, you know this - it's a treatment that's here to stay.
  • Celiac disease is not a food allergy. Let's take this opportunity to set the record straight!
Be Empowered:
  • We can work together to amplify our voice to raise awareness of gluten-related disorders.
  • We are in the driver's seat when it comes to managing our own health.
  • You play a key role in helping family members understand their risk for this genetic autoimmune disease.
  • 83% of people with celiac disease remain undiagnosed. We have the power to change that by sharing our personal stories and raising awareness of the signs and symptoms."

Why did I take the pledge?
I took the pledge, because I want to continue to be a positive voice for the gluten-free lifestyle through my blog. I plan to fulfill my pledge by informing others of the many great gluten-free options out there, and how to best handle the gluten-free lifestyle. I am a strong supporter of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, because it helps to educate, advocate, and empower people with Celiac Disease.
