faces of celiac disease
Real people with a real disease.
3 million Americans and millions more around the world suffer from celiac disease (a staggering 83% of them undiagnosed). This is a real disease affecting real people. Women and men. Young and old. All eating gluten-free to survive and to thrive. What better way to raise awareness than to show the actual faces behind the disease; to build a wall with our pictures and our stories.
Please do your share in raising awareness by adding YOUR FACE and YOUR STORY. Just fill out this form and I will add you to The Wall. To learn a bit more about each person below and what celiac disease means to them, mouse over their picture (or tap the pic if you’re on mobile).

Who I am. And who I'm not.
I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.
I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
