Meet Weston & Sean Davis
For the first 18 months of Weston’s life he was failing to thrive. He was weak and losing weight. Amy and Sean, Weston’s parents, were sick with worry and had many tearful nights.
After many tests, the final diagnosis was celiac disease.
Their family quickly learned that celiac disease is genetic. Their immediate family members were tested, and to Sean’s surprise, he was also diagnosed. He had no clue he had celiac disease. He had no noticeable symptoms, which makes this disease so frightening. He was damaging is body without even knowing it.
“Access to safe gluten-free food is paramount for my family. We are thankful to the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) for researching and promoting ways to bring safer gluten-free food to our table. As farmers, we know first-hand the importance of managing food for Canadians from gate to plate.” – Sean Davis

The Davis Family opened their family farm to the public this past summer to allow people to walk amongst the sunflowers and take photos and enjoy nature. They raised over $14,000 for the Canadian Celiac Association.
Thank you Davis Family!
