Welcome to My Personal Page
I cannot thank all of you that helped Joe, Walt and I reach our $20,000 goal. I have decided to renew my commitment at making a difference in the fight against Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis. I will again be honoring my mother Mary, my son Matt and all those that battle these diseases on a daily basis. On May 9th, I will participate in Ironman 70.3 Santa Rosa and on June 7th at Ironman 70.3 Virginia’s Blue Ridge. This will be a big undertaking, but it 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. I have set a goal of $3000 which will help to fund research and improve the lives of those with IBD. 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 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.
