    Pediatric Honored Hero: Jordan Kooper

    Hi my name is Jordan Kooper and I’m a 6th grade student at Mt. Pleasant Middle school in Livingston, NJ. I’m just an ordinary kid (and yet my mom keeps telling me I’m special as I’m writing this), who loves to play soccer and have fun with my friends.

    That all changed in 3rd grade when I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I started to have frequent stomach pains and going to the bathroom a lot. I went to my pediatrician and he thought it was just a virus that would go away in time. I went to my uncle and aunt’s house. Since they hadn’t seen me for a while, they noticed I’d lost a lot  of weight and were wondering what was happening to me. read more

     

    Adult Honored Hero: Emily Serna

    I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease while in college. I had not been feeling well for several months, and a colonoscopy confirmed the diagnosis. Crohn’s Disease wasn’t something people talked about (or had even heard of) and there was little support outside my own family. With medication, I was feeling better within months and over that next decade, I was always aware that I had Crohn’s but overall, I was lucky – my health didn’t impact my work or social life too much. I got married and had two children and healthy pregnancies. I had heard some horror stories about Crohn’s Disease, but that wasn’t me.
    Then all of a sudden, it was.  read more

    Thousands of volunteers have helped the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) work toward our mission to find cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Without our volunteers, we would not be able to provide a high level of support, education, research, and resources to our IBD community.
