LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Addison, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair



Hi. My name is Addison. I’m almost 12 years old. In the fall of 2016 I was tired all the time and I didn’t want to eat because my belly hurt so I lost a lot of weight. I missed a lot of school and I didn’t even have enough energy to do gymnastics. In December of 2016 I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. I had a feeding tube for more than 2 months and got a lot better. Now I just have treatments about every 8 weeks and I feel great. I am back to gymnastics and volleyball too.

Crohn's and colitis can have really bad effects on people’s lives but they don’t have to. The more we know about causes and treatments, the better the chances of people being able to live normally. Research is really important. That’s why I’m happy to be Honorary Chair of the Gutsy Walk in London. Together we can make a big difference!
