One glance at our web site and you will surely notice we are different than other gluten free food websites you will find online. You see...our story began one day back on October 3, 2011. It was the day our 9 yr old son was rushed into the intensive care unit of Good Samaritan Hospital and diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, Celiac Disease, and Hashimoto's Disease. Life changed in a way none of us could have ever imagined on that unforgettable day. When you are diagnosed with Celiac Disease as I was back in 2007 you deal with the sacrifices and disappointments that come with giving up some of your favorite gluten containing foods. As an adult you recognize and appreciate that a gluten free diet is the simplest and purest way to feeling good. It is an entirely different story for children..especially when they are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as well as Celiac Disease as in my son's case. So much is taken from a child when diabetes shows up to take control of every aspect of a person's life. But now to factor in the loss of all the favorite gluten containing foods he loved to eat was going to take some creativity and effort on my part as well as acceptance and understanding on his. We survived the first few months with very little sleep, a ton of worry, and an ache in a part of our soul we didn't even know existed. As time passed we learned to deal with these diseases both seperately and together as they directly impact each other in unexpected ways.. afterall..his intestines were damaged from the un-diagnosed Celiac Disease therefore his digestion of the foods he was eating was unpredicatable to say the least! We spoke of taking all that we had learned and doing something positive with it to help others living with these diseases and we were encouraged by those around us to take a leap of faith and develop a web site where people living on a gluten free diet could be completely understood. A place where they could shop, order, and buy great gluten free food online at the best prices available. It is with great pleasure that we launch Gluten Free Delivers, a web site that provides not only great gluten free food products affordably priced, but support by offering tasty gluten free recipes, meal planning, gluten free gift baskets, gift certificates, scholarship opportunities, facts about living on a gluten free diet, and kid friendly lunch box and product suggestion from our very own son. After all, he lives with these diseases everyday and he knows what kids like! To sum up our story, I can tell you that we are a family of 4..2 living with Celiac Disease, 1 of whom suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, while the remainder are perfectly healthy. The thing that sets us apart from many families is that we are like pea's in a pod..we stick together and endure life as 1 unit. For this reason we chose the peapod as our logo..it clearly defines who we are.
