Time to Celebrate
Ten years. A decade. A lifetime. Yesterday.
In April of 1998, the first issue of Living Without was published. The magazine was created after Id been diagnosed with celiac disease and had found few resources available to assist people on a special diet. Prior to 1998, words like gluten and celiac were unknown to me. I was stunned and frustrated that celiac disease, a condition which impacted so many (approximately 3 million Americans) could be known by so few. I sold my home and used the proceeds to start this publication. I was passionate. I was determined. I jumped into the publishing arena and the magazine became my life.
