Let's fight to END the POOP diseases!
I am SO EXCITED! I have made the choice to join Team Challenge in 2020 to help support the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation once again! As you may already know, my family was forever changed when my husband was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Currently there is no cure and unfortunately people aren’t as eager to help support diseases that involve POOP! But hey, let’s think the emoji’s for giving us the poop emoji to get everyone pumped up about poop!
I have until May 2020 to fundraise for this great organization and then June 2020 I will be tackling an Ironman 70.3! This organization gives over 80% of the funds raised to helping find medications and cures so will you help me help the millions of people suffering (most completely silent about their disease) to give them better quality of life and reduced risk of cancer. I’m certain that YOU have someone in your life that you have no idea has IBD. No amount is too small or too large to help! Thank you!
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.
