Dear Family and Friends,
Every hour of every day, one Canadian is newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
Many of you may know already but I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease over 2 years ago now and has been a very very hard disease to live with. Not only does it affect my everyday life but it also does not allow me to donate blood anymore to those that so desperately need it so not only does this disease affect my life personally but it prohibits me from helping others which was devastating to me when I found out.
My 19 year old son Kiefer was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis back in 2012 and has been living with it since then which has resulted in many trips each year to hospitals.
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.
How will your generous gift make an impact? Your donation will be invested in world-class research, empowering patient programs, advocacy efforts and elevating awareness.
Together, we can move towards a future free of Crohn’s and colitis.
Thank you for showing you have the guts it takes to find cures.
