LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Bayley, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair



I was born in 2002 with a privileged life and healthy body. When I was fourteen I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. I never thought something like this could happen to someone like me and I felt clueless as to what I should do when it did happen. I had to answer questions I never had to consider before. Which treatment is best for me? Am I in enough pain that I should see my doctor? Is this supposed to be normal for my body now? There was never a definitive answer. Crohn's and Colitis Canada is needed for increased patient awareness, for patients' ability to self-advocate and for furthering research, so doctors can treat their patients in the most effective way possible. All inflammatory bowel disease patients should be able to have the highest quality of life. Being a local honorary chair does not mean being the face of Toronto's Gutsy Walk. It means being given the honourable role of community leadership that raises awareness of these life-changing diseases.
