April 2012 45th Session of the Commission on Population and Development United Nations Economic and Social Council "Laying the Foundation for Healthy and Productive Living: Prevention of Non Communicable Diseases in Adolescents and Youth" New York, USA.

"I have to say that Krystal Boyea's story is one of the most empowering I have heard in years. I was very emotional and will definitely use a lot of her advice and lessons learned in my every day activities." 

 

Male, 52 years. 

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY?

 

"I have known a lot of people close to me that have been diagnosed with diabetes. Krystal's story really touched me because I do feel like diabetes is one of those hidden diseases. You can't physically spot it, but its one that if not treated properly can be very deadly. I love that Krystal has become a very needed voice for people with diabetes and is putting all of her efforts into the Caribbean."

 

Female, 39 years. 

"Thank you for this. It brought tears to my eyes and hope for my eleven year old daughter. Last year when she was diagnosed her confident soccer skills took a hit with all the turmoil. Last night I watched her play like her "old" self.

 

You're tough, and she is too!"

 

Mother of child living with type 1 diabetes. 

"I finally have an understanding of my childs condition. The way Krystal breaks down and explains the complex disease of diabetes and her strategies for LIVING with it day to day have changed the life of my daughter and our entire families life as well."

 

Mother of child living with Type 1 diabetes. 

"One word...Awesome!"

 

Male, Age 43. 

"Speechless"

Male, Age 53

"Most powerful speech I've seen in a long time Krystal.  It brought tears."

 

Male, Age 55
