LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Victoria, 2019 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair




My name is Victoria, I go to St. Kevin’s High and I am looking forward to being a Honorary Chair for the 2019 Gutsy Walk.

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease around two and a half years ago. After learning of the disease, my life had become progressively harder. I was twelve and had just been told that I had a disease, which I had never heard of.
When I found out there was no cure I didn’t know what to do, I was yet to have been told that it could be put into remission. With learning it could be put into remission I started treatments. I’ve done many different treatments to help put my Crohn’s into remission, some successful and other not so much. Since that day my life has been difficult, but with the support I’ve gotten from my friends, family, and medical team makes it a little easier to deal with.

Throughout my journey with Crohn’s, I have made many new friends who are also living with inflammatory bowel disease. It’s not easy to live with, not in the least, but after a while you learn to live with it and keep doing the things you love. For me, I love playing basketball and hanging out with my friends. Sometimes IBD can get in the way of doing the things you love, but you get back on your feet and try again.

I want others living with inflammatory bowel disease to know, your disease does not define who you are. What you do about it does. You are not alone, you are strong. Keep positive because we are in this together.
