Russell Wilson Testimony:
“I understand the devastating effects that diabetes causes. When my dad passed away in 2010, I vowed to make a difference in fighting this disease. Upon meeting Charles, Heather and Winston (The founders of CR3 Diabetes Association, Inc.) in May 2012, I humbly accepted their invitation to become the Ambassador for CR3 Diabetes Association, Inc. and be the face of their organization. Since my involvement, the organization has provided affordable diabetic supplies such as glucose strips, meters, insulin pump supplies and certified refurbished insulin pumps to those in need; but there is more work to be done! Won’t you please help me make a difference?”
Lisa Pitt Testimony:
First I would like to say Thank You to Charles Ray and staff. It's because of these amazing people that I'm still alive.
My name is Lisa Pitt and this is my story. I have been fighting diabetes since I was three years old. As I got older my diabetes got worse. It got so bad that my doctor all but gave up. She told me the only thing that could help me was to get an insulin pump. Well I tried and my insurance would not cover it. As we waited for other alternatives I started getting worse to the point of a kidney dysfunction, bladder dysfunction, diabetic neuropathy, legally blind, strokes, and some amputations. The, one of the nurses told me to get in touch with the CR3 foundation. After hearing my story they helped me procure the necessary insulin pump and supplies I needed to sustain life. After receiving the insulin pump my A1C went from 23 to 12 in six months. I'm doing a lot better thanks to CR3 for making my supplies affordable. It's because of them I'm still among the Land of the living. I can't begin to say thank you enough. For what they have done is worth more than a simple Thank you.
Caitlinn Kennedy Testimony:
My name is Caitlin and I have been a type one diabetic since I was five years old. Now almost Twenty, I've had my share of complications and inhibitions from this complex disease. Since meeting Charles, Heather, and Winston, my life has changed drastically.
CR3 Diabetes Association, Inc. is an amazing non-profit organization run by diabetics for diabetics. Charles, Heather, and Winston have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of men, women, and children living with a horrible condition. They provide blood glucose testing meters, test strips, pumps, and pump supplies at discounted prices for low income families and individuals without health insurance, but most importantly they provide hope. The service that they provide gives me hope for the future, that diabetes can be manageable, and some day we will find a cure. CR3 inspires me to keep fighting this illness because I am not alone. I can not thank CR3 enough for all they have done for me.
Stacey Leos Testimony:
"CR3 Diabetes has helped save my life! I can not thank them enough. Without their help, I could not afford to stay on my insulin pump. I would again be forced to take oral medications and several injections a day. My body does not tolerate the oral meds well and I endure many awful side effects. I also no longer have the constant worry of where I am going to get my supplies every month, this is a huge weight off my shoulders. Without their help, I can honestly say I would have given up on managing my diabetes. Thank You!!!"
