Dear Family and Friends,
Every hour of every day, one Canadian is newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
I was one of those Canadians this past year . At first, I felt sorry for myself and could not understand why life had dealt me this card. After a few days of research and thought I came to realize that the only way to beat this disease is to not give up and have no fear as you live your life. I didn’t get Crohn’s back in July 2017. I have had it most my life.
I gained a new purpose .
The support I got from friends, family, work colleagues, and hospital staff from day one has inspired me to want to do something, something that promotes awareness and builds hope in the fight against this nasty disease.
Thank you all for this inspiration and I won’t let you down on this quest for hope .
On June 3 I will run, walk, or crawl in support of the fight against Crohn’s and Colitis . Please don’t feel obligated to donate, but any donation or gesture of support will be highly appreciated. By simply reading this, you've already helped me achieve my primary objective and that is to build awareness.
Awareness and hope will beat this disease.
I also invite anyone to join me on June 3, and I will make a donation on your behalf.
Thank you so much for your support!
