Together, we can make a difference for those who live with Crohn’s and Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic (ongoing) disease of the colon, or large intestine. The disease is marked by inflammation and ulceration of the colon mucosa, or innermost lining. Crohn's disease is a chronic (ongoing) disorder that causes inflammation of the digestive or gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Help me raise money to assist me in my quest to bring awareness of Crohn’s and Colitis, to fund research to find more effective treatments of these diseases, or better yet, to help find a cure for Crohn’s and Colitis. For me to be able to race for the cure, I have to raise a minimum of $1800, so I need all of your help to give me a chance to be a part of this important goal. Thank you!
