Why Donate?

As many of you know, this event is one of great personal importance to me, the alphabets (of which my brother is the lead guitarist and singer), and the members of ROADS band. After nine years of battling Ulcerative Colitis, a debilitating gastrointestinal disease, I was left with no other choice but to have the entirety of my large intestine and rectum removed, a major operation that was not without many complications. I will soon undergo a second surgery to reverse the ileostomy that I was left with after the first procedure. For more about my personal story, please see my blog ( http://katieucblog.blogspot.com/ ).

Iris Campo, the drummer and backup singer of ROADS, has a similar story to tell. After being confronted with a life-threatening complication of Ulcerative Colitis, toxic megacolon, Iris was given 2 hours to decide to undergo a panproctocolectomy to remove her large intestine and rectum. If she did not undergo the procedure, she would have inevitably suffered from a life-threatening complication of U.C., peritonitis. Because Iris was so ill at the time of her procedure, she was left with no other choice but to undergo three surgeries over the course of nearly a year. Please see Iris' Video Blogs on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/user/IrisUCVlog?blend=2&ob=5 ).

Iris and myself are just two cases out of the 1 million people that are suffering from Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis in North America today. Mothers are too ill to take care of their children, adolescents are too sick to grow and children and adults alike are confined to their houses or hospital beds for years on end because of these extremely debilitating diseases. Please join us on August 14th to create a night we can all remember, or please consider making a donation to our fundraiser if you cannot make it to the event. Join us in the fight to cure Crohn's and Colitis!

Attend our Event!

Please also consider attending our event, "Guitars for Guts: A Benefit Concert for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America."
