From Coda: Hello all of you two leggers! Welcome to my team page. If you are wondering why a cute four legger like me is trying to find cures for IBD, well let me tell you: I love a special two legger named Patrick. Patrick has Crohn's disease and I wish that he didn't. Patrick is in pretty good shape now, but I never want him to have to go to the hospital again. You see, in 2015, Patrick had major surgery to remove messed up sections of his small intestine. The therapy dogs at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh were the best and they convinced Patrick and his family to get a dog. They found me and I rescued them a few months after that surgery. (I hear the docs at the hospital were pretty good too.) Anyway, I took to my two leggers, all four of them, right away. They are a good bunch of humans. The following year, Pat needed surgery again! And this time he was gone from me for many days. I even snuck him out of the hospital to take me for a walk one time with the help of a very nice nurse. Well, thanks to the love of a good dog, ME, and a medical team worth their weight in chicken treats, Patrick is in good shape now. I want a cure for him though, so that he never again has to go through the stuff he endured a few years ago.

PS Here is the scoop that the Foundation wants you to know about: 

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 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 $3,700.00 for Take Steps Pittsburgh 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 been a leader in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research since their founding more than 50 years ago. They are accelerating the pace of research by breaking down traditional barriers to patients, data, funding, and collaborations, as well as catalyzing critical cutting-edge research studies and clinical trials at major medical institutions, and financing underdeveloped areas of research.

Empowering Patients and Caregivers: The Foundation serves more than 1.2 million patients annually, empowering patients and caregivers through education, support, and advocacy programs.
