Team Saving Grace - Big Brother Addition
Dustin has decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis once again in honor of his little sister Grace. On September 17-18, 2022 Dustin will participate in the 2XU Malibu Triathlon, his second triathlon for Team Saving Grace. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate him to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure for his sister who has been living with Crohn's Disease for over 11 years. By her side always, trying to help how he can. Won’t you please consider a donation today?
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect millions of Americans. 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.
