Welcome to My Personal Page
RACE IN ORANGE. We have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On Nov 7th I was planning to participate in the New York City Marathon, but unfortunatley due to military orders I will be unable to attend, so in place I will be participating in the race in orange anytime and also running an additional one mile for every $100 donated. Sofia along with family and friends will be participating in the run/walk on Nov. 7th. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate us to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure. Any donations and/or shares are greatly appreciated and make a bigger difference than you may realize. http://online.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/goto/sofianizzony is the other link for donations for the marathon.
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.
