LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Nadia Tarrabain, 2019 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
My name is Nadia Tarrabain. I am thrilled to be part of the Gutsy Walk team and one of the Honorary Chair's for 2019.
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was sixteen years old and I am now eighteen. I am currently in my first year of university. I love spending time with my family and friends as well as leading an active life.
Even though living with IBD can be challenging, I do not allow it to prevent me from pursuing my goals and dreams. I was consumed with fear when I first received my diagnosis and the treatment plan was difficult to say the least. You never think it can happen to you until it does. I loved my life and didn’t want any of it to change. I had to dig deep to muster the strength and determination that this disease was not going to define me. Never giving up and living my best life is what is important to me. Crohn’s has changed who I am for the better. It has made me appreciate the small things in life and not to take anything or anyone for granted.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those supporting The Annual Gutsy Walk and for raising funds to find a cure for IBD.
