Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello friends and family - Guess who is turning 50 years old this year?! Me! The New York City Marathon is also turning the big 5-0! In order to celebrate both milestones, I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On November 1st will participate in the 50th Anniversary of the New York City Marathon! I am doing this for my husband Eric and son Brennen, who both suffer from Crohn's disease, for all of the other IBD warriors who have learned to live with these diseases, and for all of the caregivers and family members who do all they can to make life more comfortable for their loved ones. Will you please consider a donation for my birthday? I know there are many good causes competing for your donations. The time and effort for this big undertaking 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. No donation is too small (or too big). THANK YOU!!!! MERCI!!! ARRIGATO!!! GRACIAS!!!!

About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affects almost 1 in 100 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however the incidence is increasing in children.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the largest non-profit, voluntary, health organization dedicated to finding cures for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The Foundation’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults who are affected by these diseases. The Foundation works to fulfill its mission by funding research; providing educational resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public; and furnishing supportive services for those afflicted with IBD.
