    2017 Mercer County Honored Hero

    Michael Payne 

    Michael Payne

    My name is Michael Payne, and I am 33 years old, and live in Princeton.  I have had Crohn’s Disease for 25 years.  I was originally diagnosed when I was living in the Seattle area in elementary school.  My symptoms started with bloody stools.  I was referred to a Pediatric GI Specialist in the Seattle area, and got a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease, and was put on Sulfasalazine.  Since then, I have had numerous hospitalizations, injections, and infusions of medications.  In Seattle, one of my most memorable moments of living with Crohn’s is one I’d care to forget.  After a colonoscopy, and a medication switch, I was scheduled to have my First Communion, and my grandparents and flown up from San Francisco for this occasion.  However, as a side of effect of the colonoscopy, I got sick in church on the day of my First Communion, leading to an ER visit in the middle of the night.  As you might imagine, being a kid at the time, I was upset, but looking back, this was probably one of the few times that having Crohn’s impacted my life.read more
