40 more days of the Food Allergy School CANpaign…

Patience. Patience. Patience.

That’s the advice my parents keep giving me when they talk about the Food Allergy School CANpaign.

“Just relax,” my mom says. “It will happen.”

It’s similar to the advice my fortune cookie gave me the other day, too.

With 40 days to go in the Food Allergy School CANpaign, I’m sitting here wondering, “Is my goal of reaching 1,000 schools too unrealistic? Am I just some naive, wide-eyed kid?”

Maybe. Or maybe I just need a bit more patience. There’s still 40 days to go!
