Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello Friends, 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. I have spent the years since then changing my life to adapt to the disease. There is currently no cure and it affects many people in so many different ways. Every decision I make regarding what I put into my body and what I do with my body relates to how the disease will impact my health.
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On July, 27, 2019 I will participate in the Ironman 70.3 in Santa Rosa, CA. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure. Won’t you please consider a donation today?
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.
The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is: To cure and prevent Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
