I don't understand why epi pes aren't available in all schools. They have defibrillators in some schools for emergencies why not epi pens? The chances of an allergic reaction happening are rising. For a $100.00 a year so many lives could be saved. Most people don't know they have a food allergy until they have a reaction. To me it's common sense that the school has them.
So right now there are two links I want to share:
1. FANN also has a sample letter to send to your senators to encourage them to pass the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act. This is federal legislation encouraging states to adopt laws requiring schools to have epi pens to use for any student.
2. A petition from change.org asking that epi pens be available in all schools. It takes two seconds to sign.
Do your part. Send that letter and sign the petition. Fight for your children's right to be safe.
