LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Kaitlyn McQuaid, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
May 19, 2016 was a day that changed the path of my life forever, it also happened to be World IBD Day, but I didn’t learn this until I got home from receiving my diagnosis.
Since learning I would live with Crohn’s disease I decided to find out what it was and if there might be other people thriving with this illness. Through Crohn’s & Colitis Canada I was able to connect with the Kitchener-Waterloo chapter where I found not only other patients but also people I would end up calling lifelong friends. Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has also provided me access to speakers and events where I have learned more about treatment options and what can help improve life with this chronic and invisible illness. CCC is also providing support to research that will one day lead to a cure. Since my diagnosis I have had many medical tests and different medications but with the help of one medication I am now in remission. I know if anything ever changes with my IBD I have a community to turn to. I am now thriving with Crohn’s disease.
As the Honourary Chair for the Kitchener-Waterloo Gutsy Walk 2018 I want to welcome all of you to join us for the walk or to support a team or individual this year to help continue the work of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.
