LOCAL HONORARY CHAIRS

Samantha Doman & Braun Lywak, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chairs



We began dating in December 2016 and found out on our first date that we both suffer from IBD. Both never having dated anyone before with the same condition, we immediately felt very exposed and vulnerable. We immediately knew the pain and struggles each other has been through even before we started exchanging details; because we’re both living with IBD and fighting the same battle.

Braun has ulcerative colitis and Sam has Crohn’s disease. Our journeys with our individual diseases have been very different, which opened our eyes to how wide the spectrum of IBD can be. Although IBD is known as an invisible disease, once you begin talking there is so much more to it.

Now, we have been together for over a year, we lean on each other for support and keep each other grounded when times get tough. Including reminding each other that one day they’ll find a cure. That’s why we participate in the Gutsy Walk. We walk to raise awareness and ensure people of all ages living with these diseases can live their lives to the fullest.

On Sunday June 3, 2018, join us and walk to help bring attention to these invisible diseases. Together we can stop the pain, the surgeries, the missed moments. We can Make It Stop. For life.
