Children with Cystic Fibrosis are required to take supplemental pancreatic enzymes before meals. These enzymes allow the student to digest food properly. Currently, the law states, each student must go to the nurse?s office, each day. The nurse than administers the medication to the student. This is a time consuming process, which takes forces the student to leave class early or miss part of the lunch hour. This inhibits the student?s ability to either learn or have adequate time to finish lunch. This is also becoming problematic, due to budget cuts in the schools. Some schools are eliminating full-time nurses, which would make it impossible for students to take their medication each day.

Some schools have passed laws that allow students to carry medication such as over over-the-counter pain relief medications. The main impetus for the current restrictions is to insure the safety of the students by keeping controlled substances (such as prescription medications) out of the hallways and classrooms of the school.

However, the danger of someone taking un-prescribed pancreatic enzymes is negligible.

We believe students who have Cystic Fibrosis and require pancreatic enzymes before meals, with a Doctor?s note, should be able to carry and administer their own medication. If the student demonstrates understanding and compliance with the prescribed dosage, before the school nurse, the student should be free to carry and administer the medication.

If you agree, please sign this petition and contact your lawmakers both state and federal, so David?s Law will become law as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or want to help the cause, please contact David Wagner?s Cystic Fibrosis Hotline at 612-282-1211

"Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to express my thanks. I?ve been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a ton of good information as well as enjoyed the way you?ve structured your site. I am attempting to run my own blog but I think its too general and I want to focus more on smaller topics. Being all things to all people is not all that its cracked up to be."
