You need to read this:
On the “Super-Cool Food Allergy News” front, FARE has said they will not accept donations from Mylan until this Epi-Pen price-gouging shenanigans is resolved. That makes me feel a lot better about asking for your donations for the upcoming Food Allergy walk in Pittsburgh. It’s a little less messy.
As the linked article proves, we still need awareness. We still need education. We still need advocacy. We still need research. We still need a cure. That is what all of your donations go to.
I was going to write a blog about;
But, if you’re interested (even mildly), you have already read those things and made up your own mind.
My initial reaction was to pull out of the FARE walk for Food Allergy due to Mylan’s sponsorship. But, that won’t do anyone any good. We still need research. We still need advocacy. We still need awareness. We still need a cure.
I have to trust that in the midst of public outcry, Bresch will be held to task. I can hope that the rest of the good people at Mylan don’t suffer. I currently refuse to revel in the failures of others, even if it is at their own hand.
I again would like to ask for donations to this year’s food allergy walk, and I will once again participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project this Halloween.
Don’t let Mylan’s issues prevent you from helping food allergy research, education, and advocacy.
Last night, it took me two hours to get home… it’s normally a 35 minute drive. The industrial park in which I work was in chaos. The roads weren’t that bad, but tires were spinning because of people flooring the gas… and the local cops stopped a bunch of cars… close together… on a slush-covered hill.
I took these photos while sitting still for quite some time, not while moving. Yinz are ridiculous.
