LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Sarah Boucher, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
I am extremely honoured to have been selected as the honorary chair for the 2018 Sudbury Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and colitis.
My name is Sarah Boucher and I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2015. Life is busy as I am a mother of 7 year old twins Chloe and Luca and both my husband JF and I work full time as Registered Nurses at Health Sciences North in Sudbury.
Since being diagnosed two years ago, I have been hospitalized twice with two debilitating flares and left extremely ill and unable to work 10 out of 24 months. This past year I was finally put on a biologic. I am extremely thankful to not have had a flare since. With that said, I am always fearful of another flare and ultimately losing my colon.
It is so important for me to share a little bit of my story in order to help raise awareness for Crohn's and colitis. There are so many others like me who no longer want to live with pain, multiple surgeries, countless hospitalizations and time away from loved ones.
Please help me along with so many others across Canada to participate in the annual Gutsy Walk and raise money in order to fund research, create awareness and patient programs, and ultimately find a cure!
Let’s make it stop... For Good!
