Sowing the seeds for celiac!
Spring is here and we are sowing the seeds for celiac with our friends at Davis Family Farm!
Thank you to everyone who purchased sunflower seeds! $4.00 dollars from every package of Davis Family Farm sunflower seeds goes directly to supporting programs and services that empower individuals and families with celiac disease.
With your support, CCA can continue to increase public awareness, invest in research, meet with Health Canada, collaborate with other stakeholders, educate restaurants and lobby the food industry so that Canadians with celiac or gluten sensitivities can thrive.
The celiac community will plant the seeds in May for Celiac Awareness Month.
Meet father and son, Sean and Weston Davis.
Their journey with celiac disease first began when Weston was just a year old. Weston became very sick and they were desperately searching for answers for eight months. Once Weston finally got a positive blood test for celiac disease and a follow-up endoscopy, he went from not growing to a young flourishing boy in just a matter of a month after being put on a strict gluten-free diet. Through Weston’s diagnosis, Sean was able to find out that he also has celiac disease.

Sean Davis states “The day our son got diagnosed with celiac disease was the best day of our lives because as parents, then, we knew how to take care of our child.”
Sunflowers represent new beginnings and it was their celiac diagnosis – a new beginning, that inspired sowing seeds for celiac!
The Davis family has been tremendous supporters of CCA and we hope you will too. It is because of families like you and the Davis’s giving back to the community through CCA that other families are learning about celiac disease and getting the right help.
