Here is a 3 minute, professional video, summarizing my story.  If you can't see the video, click here and you will be redirected to the clip on YouTube.

Check out this video The Mighty created about my art project, "Embrace You".

On January 15th, 2015, one of my God-sized dreams became a God-sized reality: I shared the stage with Natalie Grant.  Below is a clip of one of the most beautiful and  humbling experiences I've had in my 24-years of life.  Thank you to all those who sent in a nomination, to Natalie, Charlotte Gambill, and to the Dare to Be event.  I am encouraged and incredibly blessed beyond measure.

Check out my recent radio interview on the Ed Tyll Show.  This was recorded live, June 1st, 2016.

Also, here is a song that my friend Denise Nicholes wrote for me during a time of struggle and hurt, helping me see "Beyond the Stain".  (Based on the blog entry that my mother wrote, "The Stain".)  If you can't view it on this page, click here!

  1. Hello Crystal,
    Thank you for sharing your story and for turning a rough situation into such a positive statement.
    I am the Administrative Assistant for the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation, and our motto is We Are Making a Difference! I totally loved seeing you read our Buddy Booby book in the video.
    Did you know that in 2004, we officially had Congress declare May 15th as the Day of Awareness of Vascular Birthmarks?
    We have been looking for someone to share their story on our Day of Awareness website--and get other people to share their stories. Would you be willing to share your video on our YouTube channel and website? We would send out an email to our 7,000 supporters with a link to the webpage with your video on it.
    Please let me know if you're interested. I can be reached at or 610-301-4522. I hope you'll contact me soon.
