Avery’s Angels District Manager
Southeast Atlantic District Manager (NC) – West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida
Hello! My name is Crystal Printy. I live in North Carolina and have been serving as an Avery’s Angels volunteer since March 2017.
Why I Volunteer: Upon discovering I was pregnant with my third son, a child diagnosed with gastroschisis, I felt extremely alone and depressed, and did not know anyone who’d had a child with this rare birth defect. It was through an online community that I discovered Avery’s Angels, registered, began receiving support, and got connected with others who shared the same worry and sorrow I felt in the unknown journey ahead. Those supporters stood by me through our journey and continue to provide support. It is because of their time and energy, their love and support, and the education they poured into me about my son’s condition that I came to join Avery’s Angels as a volunteer. It is my desire to return the same kindness and support that was first given to me, unto those who come to seek our assistance along their journey.
