An Open Letter of Thanks to Trace Adkins
As the parents of a child with a severe peanut allergy, we wanted to say thank you for helping to raise much needed awareness about the seriousness of food allergies and the urgent need for funding food allergy research through your recent appearance on the "Celebrity Apprentice" and the dedication of proceeds from iTunes sales of your hit country song "Your Gonna Miss This".
We were very moved by your dedication, passion, and the class you showed while representing Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) and the families, friends and medical staff dedicated to protecting our food allergic loved ones while balancing the desire for them to live normal lives until we find a cure for all food allergies.
Our son Bo is in a peanut allergy treatment research study at Arkansas Childrens Hospital (ACHRI) in Little Rock, and we constantly see the living proof of the real benefits and promise that food allergy research is already providing to those with food allergies. And now that we have your great albums loaded on the iPod, we have more great music to help us pass the time during the 7 hour drive from south Louisiana to the peanut allergy study in Little Rock every other week!
Thank you Trace Adkins for all that you do to support food allergy awareness and research. God bless you and your family.
