In July 2015, we learned that Avery was suffering from the affects of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). The doctors concurred it was most likely Crohn's, which affects the entire digestive system. She continues to be in remission since December 2015 after starting treatment. This means she has no typical symptoms, her blood work is in therapeutic range, no missed life events or school, and she can be as active as she always was before her symptoms started.
This is NOT the case for all of those diagnosed with IBD/Crohn's/Colitis. We know how lucky Avery is! But, this disease may not always be so kind to Avery's body....no matter what she does. That is why research is still so important. The 4 Ferrell's will be walking again this year in the Take Steps for (CCFA). Please consider joining our team by walking and/or donating, if you are able, to find a cure for Avery and many others that suffer now and for a lifetime...until we FIND THE CURE!!
This year, Avery has the privilege of representingTake Steps Fort Wayne as the Honored Hero! We are so proud of her!
