Six years ago my life was very different. My daughter was in pain every day. She had fever every day, she dropped 6 lbs off her already way to frail frame, she had constant stomach aches, she had sores in her mouth, she had diarrhea every time she ate and was gassy and just miserable. So started my journey as a mom of a child with an irritable bowel disease.
Fast forward to today, my same daughter, Jacinda, now lives pain free and is a very healthy weight. It is such a relief that she has an amazing a team of doctors that help keep her in remission.
None of this would be possible without the help of the Crohns and Colitis Foundation. The Take Steps Walk is one of the organizations biggest yearly fundraisers that contributes to the organization’s research and programs that support people with Crohns Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
This year, our team, The Seedless Strawberries, is hoping to raise $5,000 which repress the 5 years Jacinda has been in remission.
Thanks for helping me teach my goal!
Please help me reach my personal goal of $250.00 for Take Steps Charlotte so that together we can support the crucial work of the Foundation. Your donation to my fundraising efforts will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.
