Diaries of an Allergy Mamma: Epi Pen Petition

This is super important to me and I hope that you'll take some time to electronically sign the petition. There are many many children out there who have known allergies and many children who have not been diagnosed.  By having Epi Pens in schools, all children will be safer.  My child carries an Epi Pen, however if the school has one it may be closer to him during an attack.  When SECONDS matter in a life and death situation you want to have an Epi Pen close.  There are also children out there who have not been diagnosed with a life threatening allergy.  Often times the first allergic reaction can be shock in which they stop breathing.  If schools carried an Epi Pen these children could be saved.
