HI, I am Jackie, I'm 15 and this is my team. I was diagnosed with IBD in 2019 and it can feel very lonely and scary when you are first diagnosed. The foundation helps people like me with events to bring us togther to see we are not alone, support, and research for better treatment options and hopefully someday a cure.
I take steps for all the people like me living with IBD wondering what tomorrow will bring – surgery, cancer, additional treatments? I take steps to find better treatment options and of course to find a cure. I take steps for my friends who have monthly infusions, ostomy bags, or are being hospitalized right now for surgery or treatmet. I take steps for all the kids younger than me that are just getting diagnosed and are scared or may not be able to attend their friend’s birthday party. I take steps for all the people out there that are yet to be diagnosed. There are so many reasons to take steps and I hope you join me!
Please help me reach our team goal of $1,000.00 for Take Steps Gold Coast by donating or registering and fundraising. Your support will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.
