LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Kori, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair



My name is Kori. I am 18 years old and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2012 when I was 13. Three years after I was diagnosed I was not seeing any improvement in my condition after trying several medications and being on enteral nutrition. At this time, I ended up needing to have surgery to remove my colon. I have had multiple surgeries since and I now have a permanent ileostomy.

A few years ago I heard from a friend about the Crohn’s and Colitis Nanaimo chapter. I joined the chapter and met some great people who understood what I was going through. At this time I also found out about the Gutsy Walk. The Gutsy Walk is important to me because everybody comes together to support each other and raise awareness. My hope for the future is to help raise more funds to contribute to research, which will hopefully lead to someday finding a cure for IBD. Please walk with us on Sunday, June 3rd in helping myself and others raise proceeds toward research and patient care.
