Incredibly, this is our 11th year supporting the over 3 million patients of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
It's a day we look forward to every year. We walk with our friends, raise a LOT of money and end by celebrating with our team cooking out at our house.
It's normally a day when Zoe is surrounded by hundreds of other patients. Kim and I are surrounded by many other parents of patients. And our friends and family witness our why; why we support the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation.
Our family is not able to participate this year in person, but we can still make a real impact!!
11 years ago diet was not mentioned as treatment. 11 years ago we didn't know how the bacteria in the gut could influence disease. 11 years ago we couldn't predict the severity of disease at diagnosis. 11 years ago, we didn't know of natural treatment alternatives to the steroids and biologics.
It's your support that brings these alternatives to Zoe and the 3 million others. If you are able to help, please do!
Thank you-- Thank you-- THANK YOU!
