  1. Buckley’s Great Steaks
    438 Daniel Webster Highway
    Merrimack, New Hampshire
    (603) 424-0995
    My husband and I were looking for a steakhouse to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, having severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivity makes visiting a restaurant nearly impossible. Reading about this restaurant I figured I would contact them to see if a night out was possible. I spoke with Tim, and he was incredible. He helped make the perfect arrangement and we were able to enjoy our dinner from start to finish without incident! Everyone was very friendly and the food was incredible. Thank you so much to everyone at Buckley’s!

  2. Sears Hometown Store
    SWANZEY, NH 03446
    Phone: (603) 352-1584

    I have multiple chemical sensitivity, and am essentially home bound because of the chemicals and materials almost everywhere that make me very ill. One new thing I started reacting to was my gas range, so we determined we needed to change to electric. Unfortunately, any new product would need to off-gas for a period of time before I could even bring it in my house. I was afraid to buy used because of the chemical products used in most homes.

    Earlier in the week I called Home Depot to see if we could purchase a floor model. I explained my condition, and the need for an appliance that had off-gassed. The representative I spoke with was rude, and after telling me no, he hung up on me. After that awful experience I spoke with a friend who also has MCS, and she recommended I try Sears.

    This morning, hubby and I decided to give Sears a try. They were Awesome! I explained my situation, and they said, “Medical Condition – take your pick of anything on the floor.” The associate then proceeded to the range section and advised the approximate floor time for each item. He then told me of a specific model that emitted zero radiation and had been on the floor for a year. It was lower in the list of prices so we chose that one.

    Hubby is picking it up tomorrow, and the salesman asked if wrapping it in plastic was OK. He also advised that he would discard any product samples included with the stove. He made all of these comments without being asked.
    There are caring people in the world who will listen and help you. You just need to find them. 🙂

    Thank you Sears for your empathy and exemplary customer service!

  3. Yes!!! Just a few weeks ago, my husband & I were trying to make fishing plans for our little family of 4. We try to do more outdoor things so I don’t get so sick. We went to the Macintosh Lake Guilford Co. Side, NC marina. On our first visit, we couldn’t stay long bc the bathrooms were pumping a heavy air freshener type produces. Most of the time, I’ll just realize think this is one more thing I’m going to have to pass on, but I was heartbroken bc the one thing my boys were looking forward to doing now looked out of the question.
    I reached out & a man by the name of Tony contacted me back. In his 40 years of working the parks, he said he’d never heard of the condition but felt very enlightened on the topic & would do what he could to help.
    By the next afternoon, he called me again to inform me that not only were the 2 removed from the facility, he was working w maintenance to remove ALL of the fresheners in all the parks & recs! He said any mew product would be to neutralize odors only, not pump or emit scents into the air. He said he wanted my family to be able to enjoy any of their facilities without getting sick!
    I emailed on his behalf as well as sent a personal ty note. This guy needs all the praise he can get bc I know there are many, many other mommies/parents with MCS who can take their children to the parks and not have to worry now!
    For someone to not have ever even met me…wow, we need more Tonys in the world!!!
