A bill that would offer incentives to schools that keep emergency medication on hand to treat children suffering from severe allergic food reactions is set to be signed by President Barack Obama. The measure was provoked by the deaths of two girls and is expected to save countless lives in the future. Sally Porter, of Sammamish, Wash., has a 10-year-old son with severe peanut allergies. Porter said:
"I think we're coming into a new time when people are going to understand and they're going to get it, and it's sad these children are dying who don't have to be dying. There's a way to save them. Just by having this medicine there is so easy."
