I think of my mother and grandmothers often, and always feel their absence on mother's day. I lost my mother and maternal grandmother to stomach cancer. My Grandmother was 64, my Mother was just 48. Did they have celiac disease? We will never know, but it is my guess.
My Mother's Day wish is for greater awareness and understanding of celiac disease in the general population - AND in the medical community. So every mother (and anyone who has a mother) can live a long, joyful, healthy, vibrant life.
