    I read the proposed Act and am SO in favor. My daughter was a junior in high school when she experienced anaphylaxis for the first time. She was prescribed an Epi-pen and taught how to use it. However, she was not allowed to carry it on her person while at school. When she started feeling constricted, she had to make it all the way to the nurse's office. The campus is huge, 76 acres, accomodating over 3,800 students. On three occasions, by the time she got to the nurse's office, she was in anaphylactic shock and had to be taken to the emergency room by ambulance. Anaphylaxis can strike suddenly and progress rapidly.
