LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Vanessa Stewart, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
My name is Vanessa Stewart and I have had Crohn's disease since I was a young child, but wasn't diagnosed until I was 14. I struggled as a teenager dealing with the debilitating symptoms of this disease. I couldn't tell you what normal felt like. My normal now is living with an ostomy, which has definitely improved the quality of my life. After surgery at the age of 26 i struggled to thrive, but i eventually healed and have been able to do things I never imagined that I could ever do in a million years. Living out of town, I always loved exploring the woods. I have been able to finally explore the outdoors going on hikes and backpacking trips, something I am fascinated with. I love being active and it has been my outlet and motivation to keep pushing forwards and fighting this disease.
I'm very thankful to be the Honorary Chair for 2018's Gutsy Walk. I hope you will join me and many others on June 3rd 2018 to raise awareness for Crohn's and colitis and raise much needed funds for further research into a cure for this ever growing disease that affects more and more people every year.
