Welcome to My Personal Page
Kat and I are at it again. No she doesn't force me to fundraise just because she works for Team Challenge.
I do it willingly, year after year since 2013, because there are so many people we care about living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
The numbers have changed unfortunately. What used to be 1.6 million Americans is now estimated at 3 million.
What used to be 1 in 200 people you know is now closer to 1 in 100.
We need cures!
We have raised $20,000 in the past 5 years and in 2019 we are shooting for $5000 more to get to $25,000!
Thank you so much for your support
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 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.
