On this episode I speak with Lisa Rigney of the Edmonton Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association about her family’s experience of having a child diagnosed with celiac disease.  Lisa takes us through what happened, and more importantly, how the family coped.  We all understand a serious diagnosis is overwhelming, but I think by sharing our experiences, it lets us all realize that we can only do our best in trying times.  Lisa explains some of the situations she wasn’t prepared for, as well as the discussions she had with other family members, friends and the school.  At the end of our conversation, we agreed to meet up again soon to talk about the support systems available to families of the newly diagnosed, and expectations as the child gets older.
