David's Law

Messages Sent So Far
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.

I believe this change should be made to reflect the times we live in, and to meet the genuine needs of students with C-F.

I am sure that by the time children are of age to go to school and have taken their meds for 6 years that they surely know how to take their enzymes with a school nurse. My CF son did fine with taking his meds. We are now waiting for a double lung transplant. He is 26 years old now. These kids know more about their enzymes than the school givers so let them take their own meds.

The Muslim who attacked Donald Trump, Khizr Muazzam Khan, is a Muslim Brotherhood agent, working to bring Muslims into the United States. After reading what we discovered so far, it becomes obvious that Khan wanted to ?trump? Trump?s Muslim immigration policy of limiting Muslim immigration into the U.S. http://shoebat.com/2016/07/31/what-the-media-is-not-telling-you-about-the-muslim-who-attacked-donald-trump-he-is-a-muslim-brotherhood-agent-who-wants-to-advance-sharia-law-and-bring-muslims-into-the-united-states/

Also when you send a Cf child to the nurse for their enzymes they are going into a room with the possibility of sick children in there
