It’s been 9 years since I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Through my ups and downs, I’ve been lucky enough to have an extremely supportive and loving network of family and close friends.
This winter, on December 12th, 2021, I will ride for myself and family members affected by crohn’s and colitis, as well as the over 10 million people worldwide affected by these digestive diseases and who suffer in silence.
This is my 4th year participating in this incredible event with my wonderful team, "WeGiveACrap". Help me reach my team’s goal of $5,000 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. The spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures will be an energetic, supportive, fun-filled day raising money for research and improving care for patients like me. So please give a shit, and make a donation, no matter how small! Extremely appreciative of the help and effort towards this wonderful cause that is so so important to me.
Thank you for your support! I spin4 a cure.
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.
