2015 Oklahoma Take Steps Honored Hero

Jena Holliday 2015 OKC HH

Take Steps Honored Heroes are representatives of those living with Crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis in our community. They share their story of life with IBD to raise awareness and inspire others to join the fight against digestive diseases.

Jena's Story

We will continue to stand and to fight the battle until we get our cure!

Well, here I am six years later and l can’t say life has gotten much easier. January 2015 marked 6 long years since I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease...Wow! It seems like just yesterday that I was sitting in the hospital bed having one serious talk with God about how I didn't think I could do it anymore. I just didn't have the strength! Read the rest of Jena's story here.
