I was diagnosed with celiac disease in the early 1940s. I discovered the Celiac Sprue Association in the 1980s and joined immediately. The organization has been a tremendous help in my disease education as well as member support. I joined the board in the early 1990s and have never worked with a group of more dedicated people. The organizations primary goal is to help create a better life for those with celiac disease and related illnesses and sensitivities. The organization has over 130 chapters, 140 Resource units and approximately 7-8.000 members world wide. It is the largest member based celiac organization in the United States.
