LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Kevin, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair



I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was fourteen years old. This didn’t come as too much of a surprise, because both my Dad and my Grandma have it as well. The fact that I was familiar with the disease didn’t change the fact that I had a lot of questions. Will I still be able to eat all my favorite foods? Will I still be able to play sports? What will my friends think? Will I be able to live a normal life? Over time, I learned the answers to all these questions, and with the help of medication and a careful diet, I am still able to live a normal life. However, getting to that point still feels impossible to many others afflicted with this disease. For many, medications haven’t worked and surgery is the only option. And for those on medication, there is always the fear of relapse. There is still no cure.

Please join me at the Gutsy Walk in Saskatoon this summer to help raise funds and awareness. Together, we can find a cure.
