Gutsy Walk 2019 - Gutsy Walk 2019
Welcome to Jolene Houde's page

Hello family and friends and acquaintances!! 

About 2.5 years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease (it actually runs in my family). 

There are no words to describe how my life has changed since being diagnosed with this chronic, incurable disease. I’ve had to make many sacrifices in my life since then, and so have those who help support me. 

From hospital visits, to hospital stays, it’s safe to say life has been an adventure living with Crohn’s Disease, and with it being a disease that gets progressively worse with time, I know this is just the beginning. 

IBD gets little to no attention so we gotta advocate, raise awareness, and show the world how strong we are my dudes!!! 

My ultimate dream would be to find a cure for this damned disease, but even just raising awareness makes my heart happy; so if you cannot donate right now give us a share and let’s spread this around!

And if you feel so inclined, even join us on this walk!
