Welcome to Laura's story
Welcome!! As many of you know, I've had Crohn's disease for 12 years now. Through several hospitalizations and questioning "why me" I've learned one thing. Life is a gift. I will not feel sorry for myself and with this, I found my love for running. Running makes me feel "normal." I have run 3 half marathons and with every mile, I share the same goal as millions of other Americans, to find a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
This time I will be running a FULL marathon October 8 in Chicago. Your donations will not only motivate me to cross another finish line, but help us get closer to a cure. Would you please consider a donation today? I appreciate all your support. I love you all!!
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.
The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is: To cure and prevent Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
