2019 will be year 9 in Mady's Team's walk for a cure for Mady!!!

Every hour of every day, one Canadian is newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

Mady was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) at age 2, over the years she has grown into a brave, determined, and incredibly strong 11 year old.  This disease impacts every moment of her life and our life as a family – there have been many hospital stays, many surgeries, years without eating (fed only by tube),& ongoing chemotherapy drugs that help to keep her stable.  Alberta Children’s Hospital has become our second home, spending countless holidays, including Christmas there, seeing numerous clinics, we are often there every week.  

2018/19 continued with monthly IV infusions and a stomach surgery in Fall 2018 for which she bounced back from amazingly well.  She continues to add a lot more courage beads to her strings and handled the surgery, infusions and extra pokes like a true pro.  Mady’s journey is far from over – her disease is forever, the medication, and surgeries will continue.

As it takes guts to find cures, I am getting gutsy by participating in Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Gutsy Walk on Sunday, June 2.

Today, I’m asking you to get gutsy with me by making a donation to my personal fundraising page.
