In 2005 I sought help from CSA because no other treatment could be found for my various painful and worsening symptoms. Through CSA I finally found answers and relief from my symptoms CSA's outreach tells medical and lay-persons alike that gluten in wheat, rye, barley, cross-contaminated oats and all the derivites therefrom, is what sickens. Their research, compilation of data and constant updates on treatment strategies truly saves lives and reduces suffering. It takes a great deal of work to explain elusive celiac disease, to dispel the misconceptions of what CD is and what causes it. But, through CSA's efforts our nation becomes healthier one person at a time. Funding for CSA to continue research and awareness is especially crucial!

Gaining knowledge on how to manage my own CD with the gluten-free diet. Once my health was restored, I have become a more confident person . It has emboldened me to, encouraged me to again dream and therefore strive to achieve, whereas before, when I was sick I had given up thinking I would ever enjoy life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See that regular, dependable funding is in place so CSA will continue," Celiacs Helping Celiacs". They sure have helped me!

CSA has done a tremendous job helping the public understand Celiac Disease. This non-profit group has a wonderful website full of a plethora of helpful information for both those who are newly diagnosed and those who have had CD for a while and need guidance.
I love their motto! Celiacs helping Celiacs.

This group has helped me learn about Celiac Disease and the other auto-immune disorders associated with it. I have experienced better health as a result. Because they have helped me, I intend to give back by serving on our local chapter's board.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more funding for outreaches. They are a non-profit group and like most non-profits they could benefit from more funding to carry out their mission.
