LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Jayden, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair



My name is Jayden! I am 13 years old and have severe Crohn's. I was diagnosed at the age of 11 years old. For over a year I was experiencing extreme fatigue, really bad stomach pain and cramping. I didn't feel like eating due to the pain and I started to lose a lot of weight. I also found out I was anemic. I started missing school classes and was not able to physically and emotionally keep up to play with my soccer and hockey teams.

Now with the help of daily medication and the support from my doctors, family, friends and support from my teammates I am learning to cope with new daily challenges that comes with having Crohn's. I hope to keep playing my sports at a high level and go onto University and continue those sports.

Last year was my first Gutsy Walk and was overwhelmed with the support from my family and surprise appearances from my hockey and soccer teams. Please come out and help support the Gutsy Walk on Sunday June 3, 2018.

Together we can stop the pain, surgeries, and missed moments. We can make it stop.
