Atlanta Take Steps

Team Sharma

Our story: I vividly remember when Devika’s excruciating pain started on 8/23/2019 and she was subsequently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Amidst the constant storms we faced, there has been a ray of hope for better days. We are so thankful for the quality medical care she receives from her healthcare team and for guidance from physicians within our own family. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation provides excellent support and resources to many families like us. As Devika graduates from high school this year in 2022, my goal is to participate in the Take Steps Walk on April 30th and donate $2,022 to the foundation to support its cause. Help us by becoming aware of inflammatory bowel disease, donate to the cause if you wish, send us a cheer, or join our team (Team Sharma) and walk with us on April 30th! “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” I am taking a single step to support all the IBD individuals I take care of as a healthcare professional including my own daughter. Praying for new treatments on the horizon to #JustCrohnIt. #RAISE2022

 

Millions of Americans are living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and currently there is no cure. Our team is walking and raising money to support the crucial work of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Take Steps is the Foundation’s largest nationwide fundraising campaign, helping to accelerate the progress of breakthrough research and to support critical patient programs. Take Steps also brings the community together in a fun, family-friendly, and supportive atmosphere and lets patients know they have a community who supports them.

Please help us reach our team goal of $2,022.00 for Take Steps Atlanta by donating or registering and fundraising. Your support will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.

Leaders in Research: The Foundation has invested more than $400 million in research toward cures since its inception. They remain laser-focused on reducing time to disease diagnosis and improving disease management. The Foundation continues to lead the way in critically important areas of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research, and to accelerate novel therapies and innovative products that address unmet patient needs. 

Empowering Patients and Caregivers: The Foundation serves millions of patients annually, and empowers both patients and caregivers through education, support, and advocacy programs. Examples include COVID-19 resources, expanded pediatric support, influencing legislation, and focusing on diversity and inclusion.
